An exciting, eye-catching repackage of acclaimed author Walter Dean Myers’ bestselling paperbacks, to coincide with the publication of SUNRISE OVER FALLUJA in hardcover.
Seventen-year-old Anthony “Spoon” Witherspoon is returning to Harlem after seven months at an exclusive prep school. He never wanted to leave the city in the first place–especially not to walk the hallowed halls of a mostly white New England school. But now that Spoon is back home, he realizes how much he’s come to rely on his prep-school friends and routine. And the one thing he’s looking forward to most–seeing his girlfriend, Gabi–brings him the greatest shock. When he left, Gabi was a vibrant young poet. Now she’s a thin, wasted drug addict. Can Spoon help her find her way again?
