Street Love

Street Love - Walter Dean Myers

Street Love

A "New York Times" bestselling author delivers an evocative, edgy tale of star-crossed urban love, set to a Shakespearean Harlem beat.

Your first love is totally wrong for you.
Do you follow your heart?
Or do you run away?

Junice

What am I doing? He'll take one quick look
And wish he was anywhere else but here
I'm already ashamed of what I think
He will think of me, of the life I lead

Damien

Yes, she is the fruit that will
Sustain me and yes, she brings
A rain that I know can chill
But it is a rain so sweet and sings
A song my soul insists
That I follow, if I would exist
As more than I have ever, ever been
If my mother calls it evil, then I embrace the sin

Descrierea produsului

A "New York Times" bestselling author delivers an evocative, edgy tale of star-crossed urban love, set to a Shakespearean Harlem beat.

Your first love is totally wrong for you.
Do you follow your heart?
Or do you run away?

Junice

What am I doing? He'll take one quick look
And wish he was anywhere else but here
I'm already ashamed of what I think
He will think of me, of the life I lead

Damien

Yes, she is the fruit that will
Sustain me and yes, she brings
A rain that I know can chill
But it is a rain so sweet and sings
A song my soul insists
That I follow, if I would exist
As more than I have ever, ever been
If my mother calls it evil, then I embrace the sin
