9780545541312: Young Man with Camera

A picture is worth a thousand words -- and with a unique photographic format, a stunning original voice, and a provocative portrayal of bullying, Young Man with Camera is a book to get people talking.
T-- is used to getting grief. He gets it from his mom, who blames herself for his accident years earlier. He gets it from Mr. Lam, who suspects every kid of stealing from his shop. Worst of all, he gets it from Joined at the Hip, a trio of bullies so vicious that they leave T-- terrified of even using his entire name.
But T-- has his own strength too: his camera, which captures the unique way he sees the world. His pictures connect him to Ms. Karamath, the kind librarian at school; his friend Sean, whose passion for mysteries is matched only by his love for his dog; and especially Lucy, a homeless woman who shares his admiration for the photographer Diane Arbus. When Lucy is attacked by Joined at the Hip, T-- documents the assault on film. But the bullies know he has the photographs, and their anger could be deadly. What's the right thing for T-- to do? Do pictures ever tell the whole truth? And what if the truth isn't always the right answer?

Excerpt from Young Man with Camera

This is not a fire hydrant.

It’s a photograph of a fire hydrant. And the truth is, a hydrant

isn’t always a hydrant.

Sometimes it’s a perch.

I stood on my perch to take a picture of Ruby. Ruby is Mr. Lam’s daughter. Mr. Lam is the owner of McCreary’s Corner Store, which is a lie, since the store is in the middle of the block and should be called McCreary’s Nowhere-Near-the-Corner Store. Most of the time, when Mr. Lam is inside, scanning the aisles for shoplifters, Ruby is outside, drawing pictures with chalk.

Once Ruby knows what she’s going to draw, it’s a short walk between decide and done. I took a bunch of photographs to add to my Sidewalk Series. That’s what I call my pictures of Ruby and her sidewalk drawings. Ruby crouched on one spot. Ruby blowing chalk dust. Ruby carefully tracing a line.

She was adding another leaf to a beanstalk (no Jack) and I was on my perch when I heard them. Ryan, Jared, and Med are a thunderandblack-cloud combination. You know a storm is coming before a drop of rain hits the ground.
