Darius: a supersmart writer. His two escapes are his alter ego, Fury, a peregrine falcon, and hanging out with Twig. Darius thinks Twig could go far as a top-notch runner. But Darius isn’t so sure about himself. Is it possible for an artist’s life to lead anywhere?

Twig: an outstanding middle-distance runner. When Twig runs, he’s the only one to beat.

Darius and Twig: best friends. They need to navigate their Harlem world of gangs, bullies, an absent dad, an abusive uncle, the sleazy side of sports, and the uncertainty of an artist’s prospects. And they need to figure out how to grow up together, but apart.

New York Times bestselling author and Printz Award-winner Walter Dean Myers once again connects with teenagers everywhere in Darius and Twig, a novel about friendship and needing to live one’s own dream. This touching and raw teen novel from the author of Monster, Kick, We Are America, Bad Boy, and many other celebrated literary works for children and teens is a Coretta Scott King Honor Book.
