The book is great for encouraging children to write whatever they want! It is about a girl who wants to get 1st place in a writing contest at her library in order to win a ride on this amazing ride on a fun rollercoaster. Her parents, cousin, aunt, etc. tell her that she should write in in cerain ways. Her Dad says the best story would be funny, her aunt says it would make people cry, her cousin says it can't be a good story unless it's romantic. After re-writing her story over an over the girl asks her Mom what she thinks. Her Mom tells her that the bestd story will be the one that comes from her heart.SHe writes her story the way she wants and in the end is happy even if she doesn't win because what she wrote makes her happy. This would be excellent for encouarging new or struggling writers.
