Monster starts off with 16 year old Steven in jail waiting to go to court to see if he has to stay in jail for 25 years to life, or if he can go home to his parents and brother.
It goes through his feelings as he writes a movie script about everything going on around him.
He and another man named King are being investigated while in jail because during a robbery they took part in, the store owner was killed.
He takes notes about what the judge and the prosecutors are saying while in court, and what his lawyers say to him.
During the time he was in court, he begins believing what the other lawyers are saying and starts calling himself a monster.
He learns tactics on how to tell the truth while making him look less guilty and more of a human being in the eyes of the jury. At the end, you hear the jurors making their decision and it is revealed whether it was Steve or King that was convicted of murder.
The author of the book is Walter Dean Myers. He has written many other books including Fallen Angels, Sunrise Over Fallujah, Glory Field, Hoops, and many more.
Glory Field, Hoops, and many more. Walter was born August 12, 1937 in Martinsburg, West Virginia. He died on July 1, 2014 in Manhattan, New York.
Walter was married to a women name Joyce Elene Myers for ten years but then they got a divorce and Walter fell into deep depression, until he met Constance Brendle and got married to her later. They had one child named Christopher Myers. Walter died 41 years after getting married to Constance.
Although the book won 3 awards, we would not recommend this book. It was an ok story but the format was weird and it was really boring and hard to read.
