And pay attetion You let the jury know that you think the case is a serious as they do SteveYou think we're going to win O'Brien seriouslyIt probably depends on what you mean by winSixteen year old Steve Harmon is on trial for murder A Harlem drugstore owner was shot and killed in his store and the word is that Steve served as the lookoutGuilty or innocent Steve becomes a pawn in the hands of the system cluttered with cynical authority figures and unscrupulous inmates who will turn in anyone to shorten their own sentences For the first time Stev. Monster is an interesting book in several waysFirst it is written in the format of a movie screenplay interjected with the main character's a 16 year old African American boy Steve Harmon's diary like entries I thought I would not like this format I do not read many plays but it turned out to be uite the opposite the format made the story much dynamic Steve is on trial for murder he is accused of being a lookout during a robbery resulting in the death of the store owner therefore the screenplay unfolds as an intense courtroom drama where majority of the witnesses are criminals who were at some point cut a deal to testify against Steve and Steve's alleged partner and killer James King Second the story raises a multitude of uestions about guilt peer pressure racial stereotyping and flaws of court system How can you possibly trust the testimonies of criminals who do so only to reduce their sentences Is Steve guilty or he just happened to be in a wrong place at a wrong time If he is innocent how can a Harlem black boy possibly distance himself from criminals who he is only acuainted with in the eyes of the jury If he is guilty is his screenplay a way for him to convince himself of his innocence If he was in a fact a lookout does it make him a murderer And does it even matter if he is guilty or innocent if in the eyes of people around him he is a MONSTER regardless of the outcome of the trialThe ending of the book is vague we all have to decide if Steven is a victim or a criminal I love that after reading some reviews I see people have come to conclusions completely opposite to mine A great story to ponder on and discuss
