Patricia and Frederick McKissack

Walter Dean Myers

This is the story of a Black teenager's tour of duty in Vietnam in 1967. "I've gotten phone calls from men who fought in the war. When they're not able to articulate what happened, the book has been a way to discuss it with their kids." A Coretta Scott King Award Book

Crab takes Jimmy off on a trip halfway across the country trying to prove who he was and is, his father. In this intense and intimate book, Walter Dean Myers takes an unsparing look at the ties that bind us, and sometimes free us. A Newberry Honor Book
