Darius & Twig
by Walter Dean Myers
Darius is the high school student and gifted writer living in Harlem that has two ways to cope with his poverty and living around violence; his peregrine falcon alter ego and his best friend Twig. Together they navigate the dangers of gangs, an absent father, depressed mother, and school bullies. They are different but need each other to grow up together and escape the neighborhood and make it to college.
