Writing Great Books for Young Adults gives writers the advice they need to tap this incredible market.

Topics covered include:

  • Listening to the voices of youth
  • Meeting your young protagonist
  • Developing a writing style
  • Constructing plots
  • Trying on points of view

Excellent! Review by Girl Friday Ink

This was an excellent read - quick, to the point and chock-full of extremely useful information, tips, insight and advice that could only come from an industry insider. I started this on a Saturday afternoon and finished it late that evening. It has everything you need - think of it as THE for not only YA writing, but also about the business. Highly recommended.
