The title of my book is The Cruisers by Walter Dean Myers ,and it is about 4 african american kids Alexander, Kambui, La Shonda, and Bobbi in a school for the gifted and talented where they run a newspaper. That is all I’ve read so far. My connection to the book is that it takes place in america, and I’m from america. So far, I’ve only read a little, so I don’t know the plot yet. The setting is in a school in america. Alexander, who his friends call Zander doesn’t get described much as in looks or personality, but I think Zander is a african american boy who is spunky, but levelheaded.
