Citation: Myers, Walter. (2013). Darius & twig. New York, NY. Amistad.
Genre: Young Adult/ realistic fiction
Format: Chapter book
Reading Level: 5

In-class activity: This book would be a great time for students to discus what they are passionate about and what they would like to become when they grow up. Each student could pick a career and then research it online. They could report to the class what they want to be and why.

Summary:
Darius and Twig are unlikely friends. Darius loves to run and Twig loves to write and they both have major dreams of going to college. Due to their backgrounds they know that going to college may be a major challenge. Since they both despise high school and the people who surround them Darius and Twig formed a special bond. To stay out of trouble and to over come adversity the boys supported one another to make their dreams a reality. This book talks a lot about race and the stereotypes a lot of different races have to deal with.
