Walter Dean Myers was born in Martinsberg, West Virginia, into a very poor family. When he was three years old, he was adopted by Herbert and Florence Dean, who moved to New York City. Thus Myers grew up in Harlem. He began writing stories while still in his teens but had little hope of becoming a professional writer because, coming from a family of laborers, he too was expected to work with his hands. He won the contest, wrote several more books for young children, and then began writing novels for young adults. Myers's novels for teenage readers have won high praise and several awards.

The Young Landlords book.

by. Myers, Walter Dean, 1937-2014. Five devoted friends become landlords and try to make their Harlem neighborhood a better place to live.

As a boy, Walter Dean Myers was quick-tempered and always ready for a fight. He also read voraciously. Bad Boy is his story. Eventually he would write more than a hundred books for young people: lyrical picture books and gritty novels, poetry and short stories, history, biography, memoir, books that earned him nearly every major award children’s publishing had to offer. Literature was his one true faith, the lens through which he surveyed every aspect of the human condition.

In the second book of the CRUISERS series, Walter Dean Myers explores the world of competitive chess as seen through the eyes of a group of middle school misfits.

I ain't never heard of no children landlords before. He has responded to their good-neighbor complaints by dumping an unprofitable property.

Walter Dean Myers, a best-selling children’s book author whose crystalline prose often depicted the gritty lives of young people, died on Tuesday in Manhattan. His death, at Beth Israel Medical Center, followed a brief illness, his son Christopher said. Mr. Myers was a three-time National Book Award nominee, received the Coretta Scott King Book Award for African-American fiction five times and from 2012 to 2013 served as national ambassador for young people’s literature, a position created in part by the Library of Congress.

If you were looking for a real ghetto dump, you couldn’t beat The Stratford Arms. There was Askia Ben Kenobi throwing karate chops upstairs, Petey Darden making booze downstairs, and Mrs. Brown grieving for Jack Johnson, who’d died for the third time in a month—and not a rent payer in the bunch. Still, when Paul Williams and the Action Group got the Arms for one dollar, they thought they had it made. But when their friend Chris was arrested for stealing stereos and Dean’s dog started biting fire hydrants and Gloria started kissing, being a landlord turned out to be a lot more work than being a kid.

The Young Landlords by Walter Dean Myers is a different book then most books. There were times where my view of the world was challenged. There were times where the book agreed with my views. It certainly made me think about the world in a different way. It shows that life can be hard sometimes. Sometimes you can’t just give up on something because it is difficult.

The Young Landlords is defiantly a good book. I would recommend that everyone reads this book. It has a fantastic story that is different than most books. I love Dean Myers books and will continue to read his books. A+ to you Myers, continue doing what you do.

I remember this book so vividly, it was the perfect read for a young african american "tween".I truly beilieve it is one of the reasons I love reading 30 years later!
I read this book way back in the 90's when I was young and I had to read it again. This book was my favorite book! Even as an adult, I still crack up at certain parts of this book. Read it, you will not be disappointed.
