Product Details


★ “Instructive and inspiring for storytellers of all ages.” Kirkus Reviews, starred review

★ “Part writing guide, part memoir, Sepetys’ fresh, fun handbook is all inspiration.” Booklist, starred review

★ ”With the same skill and craft that Sepetys employs to write relatable and moving invented characters, she paints a picture of her family, friends, and acquaintances, proving she is capable of more than enthralling fiction. . . . This is a must for any collection where young readers have an interest in storytelling, as well as generally a good pick for fans of the author.” —School Library Journal, starred review

“This is an inspirational book that gives readers direction as they begin writing and will make them want to keep writing, and rewriting, their own stories.”SLC

“Sepetys discusses the principles that underlie good fiction and recounts details from her own life to illustrate how personal anecdotes can fuel literary creativity. . . . Novice writers will appreciate a bounty of writing prompts.”Publishers Weekly
