Harlem Summer by Walter Dean Myers, is about this boy named Mark. He is a 16 year old boy that likes to play the saxophone and write. He works at this place called the crisis. It's a newspaper company where he can do his favorite thing, write. The reason why he is working there is because he is trying to make money for his broher and his college. This book is perfect to feel the rythm of the Halem Rennasaince.

My favorite part was when he got the job at the newspaper place because he can help his brother out and also do what he knows best, write. Also because he gets to meet other writers like Langhston Hughes, which is really cool. I also like that he is thinking about his brother and not only him self.

I thouht that the book was really boring and it was hard to finish it because it didn't intrest me at all. I only read it because my brother said it was good when it's not. Don't read this book, it suckssss.
