Jimmy and Kevin could really use a guide to life.

Their activities almost land them in juvenile detention until Duke employs them in his Harlem barbershop. Duke has rules for everything. But is he offering good advice or just more aggravation?

In the groundbreaking tradition of the award–winning Monster and Bad Boy: A Memoir, Walter Dean Myers fashions a complex, layered novel about the rules for success. Handbook for Boys is the book that he wishes he could have read while growing up. It is also the book young people need to read today.

Every community should have a barbershop of wisdom with a mentor like Duke. As Duke offers pearls of wisdom to teen juvenile offenders placed under his wing, one truly admires the time and commitment to these boys; the narrative itself, however, is a bit didactic and filled with more dialogue than action. While a mature reader may have sufficient patience for the slow moving plot, a young man in need of Duke's guidance may not.

Kind of preachy, don't think teens would find book exciting enough although written in novel form
