BAD BOY: A MEMOIR by Walter Dean Myers

This memoir tells of Myers early years until he enlisted in the Army -- when he was only 17 years old and before he finished high school. Although he had discipline problems in school, he always loved to read and write stories. His parents were supportive, but had limited resources. Myers credits his success to their unwavering belief in him and their love for him.

This is a great book for anyone who doubts the value of good parenting. Myers shows that loving to read isn't a bad or uncool thing for boys, and says it's important to respect your parents -- they do what they do out of love for you. This is a great book for troubled teens.
