its a pretty good book, the book is in uhh first person i think. its pretty much just a movie script the main character is writing so i guess it would be first person. there are journal parts too which show his feelings and umm, its pretty interesting. i just finished it a few days ago for class, nd i hav a test on it tomorrow. i would recommend it

If I had to rate this book I would give it a 4 or a 3. Its pretty confusing at first but then I got used to it. Its written as if it was a play..or a movie. Its basically about this young black man who gets sent to jail for a crime he says he didnt commit. The book is written in the young boys point of view {steven is his name}. I thought that it was very interesting to see what goes through somebodys head when there in jail waiting for there trial date. I would definetly reccomend it.

This book is basically how most young black men get treated in the U.S.. They think they know one thing and find out the other. And once thay find out something they look real dumb!!!! I think this is a good book and those who don't like it so be it!

"Synopsis" by , Young, black, 16-year-old Steve Harmon, an amateur filmmaker, is on trial for the murder of a Harlem drugstore owner. Steve copes by writing a movie script based on his trial. But despite his efforts, reality is blurred until he can no longer tell who he is or what the truth is. Illustrations.
"Synopsis" by , FADE IN: INTERIOR: Early morning in CELL BLOCK D, MANHATTAN DETENTION CENTER.

Steve (Voice-Over)
Sometimes I feel like I have walked into the middle of a movie. Maybe I can make my own movie. The film will be the story of my life. No, not my life, but of this experience. I'll call it what the lady prosecutor called me ... Monster.
