9780064403566: The Mouse Rap

You can call me Mouse, 'cause that's my tag I'm into it all, everything's my bag my ace is Styx, he'll always do Add Bev and Sheri, and you got my crew

...and a crew it is! For fourteen-year-old Mouse, this summer is anything but boring. His father, who checked out from the family eight years ago, is now trying to make a comeback as a dad. Beverly, a new girl from California, seems to like locking lips with the Mouse--but she seems to like other guys, as well. Sheri is trying to persuade the gang to join a dance contest. And there's a rumor that a lot of money--the loot from a '30's bank heist, to be exact--is hidden somewhere in an abandoned Harlem building, and you know the Mouse is determined to get a piece of that action.

"It's summer in Harlem, and The Mouse (as he calls himself) and his friends look beyond dance contests and basketball for diversion.The rumor of a huge cash stash in an abandoned building left by [a 1930s] gangster offers possibilities. . . . Tightly integrated subplots strengthen an already well-crafted novel. Myers deftly paints a humor-laced picture of Harlem in sparkling prose, with characters that have universal appeal." —BL.

About the Author:

Walter Dean Myers was the New York Times bestselling author of Monster, the winner of the first Michael L. Printz Award; a former National Ambassador for Young People's Literature; and an inaugural NYC Literary Honoree. Myers received every single major award in the field of children's literature. He was the author of two Newbery Honor Books and six Coretta Scott King Awardees. He was the recipient of the Margaret A. Edwards Award for lifetime achievement in writing for young adults, a three-time National Book Award Finalist, as well as the first-ever recipient of the Coretta Scott King-Virginia Hamilton Award for Lifetime Achievement.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-10-- A novel written with a light touch, blending inner-city adventure with family and peer relationships. Diminutive Frederick, 14 and known as the Mouse, punctuates his tale of the search for hidden 1930s gangland treasure with rap verses and phrases. Mouse and his friends are intrigued by a local TV news broadcast that reveals the possiblity of nearby hidden treasure that was amassed by an Al Capone contemporary, Tiger Moran. Mouse discovers that his friend Sheri's grandfather and the still-living Sudden Sam once worked for Tiger Moran and have a vague recollection of the money's whereabouts. Through a mock bank robbery, the old timers and the teenagers find the $50,000 in an abandoned building. When he is not searching for treasure, Mouse is sorting out his feelings for his once estranged father, his amorous, unpredictable girlfriend, and his sometimes aloof friend, Styx. Myers' style is sure to win readers, as is his story about quick-thinking, fast-talking Mouse, whose banter reveals both independence and vulnerability. An upbeat, entertaining tale. --Gerry Larson, Chewning Junior High School, Durham, NC
