Guilty or not?!?, June 8 2005
The book "Monster" is written by Walter Dean Myers and is about an african-american boy called Steve, woh is on trialHe is accused of murder and robbery but nobody knows if he is guilty or not.It maybe a think of moraly guilt. In the court it makes a big suspense, because there were no real witnesses, so it is testimony against testimony.
Walter Dean Myers known from other famous books has with this book a new bestseller. He wrote this book in two different ways. On the one side you can read diary entries from Steve(his point of view) and on the other side it written like a filmskript. That makes the reader beeing both Jury and witness. It's not like other books. It has an open ending so it makes you thinking about the bokk an makey your an own opinion about Steve an the wohle trial.
