From Our Editors

A 25th anniversary edition of a classic young adult novel, Fast Sam, Cool Clyde, and Stuff is trademark Walter Dean Myers — street-smart, genuine and full of vibrant life. When Stuff moves out with his family to 116th Street in Harlem, he has no new friends or exciting prospects. So he’s really happy to make friends with Fast Sam and Cool Clyde — and especially Gloria. It’s great to have a gang and feel part of something, even when they keep getting in trouble during this incredible year! First there’s the time they go to jail. Then there’s the occasion when Stuff loses his heart — and then his head. This decades-old classic of African-American fiction is as fresh as it was back in the 1970s, with characters that endear themselves to generation after generation of kids.

Alternately funny [and] sad, but always very natural and appealing. (School Library Journal)
