Monster - Paperback

2001, ISBN: 0064407314

[SR: 530158], Paperback, [EAN: 9780064407311], HarperCollins Children's Books, HarperCollins Children's Books, Book, [PU: HarperCollins Children's Books], 2001-05-01, HarperCollins Children's Books, "Monster" is what the prosecutor called 16-year-old Steve Harmon for his supposed role in the fatal shooting of a convenience store owner. But was Steve really the lookout who gave the "all-clear" to the murderer, or was he just in the wrong place at the wrong time? In this innovative novel by Walter Dean Myers, the reader becomes both juror and witness during the trial of Steve's life. To calm his nerves as he sits in the courtroom, aspiring filmmaker Steve chronicles the proceedings in movie script form. Interspersed throughout his screenplay are journal writings that give insight to Steve's life before the murder and his feelings about being held in prison during the trial. "They take away your shoelaces and your belt so you can't kill yourself no matter how bad it is. I guess making you live is part of the punishment." Myers, known for the inner-city classic Motown and Didi, proves with Monster that he has kept up with both the struggles and the lingo of today's teens. Steve is an adolescent caught up in the violent circumstances of an adult world--a situation most teens can relate to on some level. Even reluctant readers will no doubt be attracted to the novel's handwriting-styled type-face, emphasis on dialogue, and fast-paced courtroom action. By weaving together Steve's journal entries and his script, Myers has given the first person voice a new twist and added yet another worthy volume to his already admirable body of work.

ISBN: 9780064407311

ID: 21a61105d280f54d441ddfd92986313d

Der 16-jährige Steve ist einer von vier Angeklagten, die des Totschlags an einem Drugstore-Besitzer beschuldigt werden. Im Gegensatz zu seinen Mitangeklagten ist er zuvor polizeilich nie aufgefallen. Er kommt aus einer rechtschaffenen Familie und ist viel versprechendes Mitglied des Filmklubs seiner Schule. Und doch gibt es Hinweise, dass er an einem Raubüberfall beteiligt war, in dessen Folge der Drugstore-Besitzer erschossen wurde. Steve erzählt die Geschehnisse rund um die elftägige Gerichtsverhandlung aus seiner Zelle und dem Verhandlungssaal auf zwei Arten: sein Tagebuch und ein Drehbuch, das er über die Verhandlung schreibt. Während seine Tagebucheintragungen einen Jugendlichen zeigen, den die Verhältnisse im Gefängnis zutiefst ängstigen und der sich immer wieder die Frage stellt, ob er tatsächlich das Monster ist, als das ihn der Staatsanwalt hinstellt, ermöglicht das Drehbuch einen objektiven Blick auf die Verhandlung. Schnell ist der Leser in der Rolle des Geschworene n, der mit darüber zu entscheiden hat, ob Steve lebenslang hinter Gitter soll. Doch was hat er getan? Diese Frage durchzieht den Prozess und somit das Buch. Er hat sich mit den falschen Leuten eingelassen, so viel steht bald fest. Doch kann man schuldig werden, indem man nichts tut? Denn das war das vereinbarte Zeichen: Steve sollte den Drugstore auskundschaften und dann, ohne ein Zeichen zu geben, herauskommen, wenn die Luft rein war. Kann man schuldig werden, indem man nichts tut? Diese zutiefst moralische Frage bleibt bestehen, nachdem Steve freigesprochen worden ist, und wird den Leser auch nach dem Abspann des imaginären Films nicht loslassen. Walter Dean Myers erhielt für "Monster! Monster?" zahlreiche Auszeichnungen, darunter den "Corretta Scott King Award" und den von der American Library Association vergebenen "Michael L. Printz Award". Außerdem kam er auf die Auswahlliste zum "National Book Award". Bücher / Kinder- & Jugendbücher / Lesen ab 12 Jahre, [PU: Harper & Row; Collins; HarperCollins]
