I'm reading a Walter Dean Myer's 179 paged, "Handbook For Boys." The genre is realistic fiction. This book is about a 16 year old boy named Jimmy Lynch who was charged for assaulting a fellow student. Instead of being put into a youth facility, he was put on probation and put into Duke Wilson's mentoring program for 6 months. Duke owns a barbershop where the teens he mentors work sweeping hair after school. Jimmy was being mentored alongside Kevin. Kevin was caught smoking weed and then put into the same mentoring program ans Jimmy. This story takes place in Harlem So far this story has been a lot about Duke's life advice to the teens he mentors.
