I read this book for a class titled "Writing the Young Adult Novel". I found it extremely helpful and a very easy read. I would highly recommend it to beginning and aspiring writer's like myself.

Going organizes the book around various different school subjects (gym, english, social studies, science...) which didn't really mean much to me. Nonetheless, her writing tips, insiders knowledge of the world of writing, and the summary interviews with teens help one better understand this genre. The book covers topics such as how to write a dialogue, how to frame your characters, all the way to the things you need to know when you are ready to publish, plus other great resources.
