When I presented him with Heather Wright’s new book, Writing Fiction: A Hands-On Guide for Teens, he submerged himself in it immediately, surfacing sometime later with this review:
“This. Book. Is. Awesome!!”
And he’s not the only one who thinks so. Canadian Materials published a review in its online magazine. Their response?
Writing Fiction: A Hands-On Guide for Teens is a must-have book for creative teens or those who work with teen writers – teachers, librarians, parents. With its practical, workbook-style approach, this book provides prompts, inspiration and guidance, all from an author/teacher who knows kids and writing – in short, the whole package.
My teen is using this book to prepare for the upcoming NaNoWriMo challenge – and I think I’ll do the same.
