Beast, The

Hardcover (Scholastic Press Oct. 1, 2003) , 1 edition
One of today's premier novelists brings his fiction back to Scholastic Press with a powerful and haunting love story.

17-yr-old Anthony "Spoon" Witherspoon is returning to Harlem after seven months at an exclusive prep school. It's with mixed feelings that he's left New York City in the first place to finish high school in the hallowed halls of the mostly white, very preppy New England school -- but now that Spoon is back home, he realizes how much he's come to like his prep-school life and new friends. He's missed his girlfriend, though, and is shocked to discover upon his return that the bright young poet she was when he left has become a drug addict.
