    A few good pointers that were worth reading, but a little bland. It would help young writers learn about plot and character writing. It just didn't inspire me.

    A good book for kids and adults on how to write. Loved the review of good information and loved the simplicity. She doesn't leave much room for different styles of writing and insists on a very formulaic everything planned and plotted before hand way of writing, which would have killed writing for me, so I hope it doesn't ruin it for others.

    A great book for any beginning writer. It doesn't drone on and on like some of the writing books written for adults.

    I read this for Vermont College--it was suggested we read one book about writing for children and I chose this book from their list. Although this book is written for middle school students, it is a valuable resource for older writers. Bauer covers the fundamentals and discusses every concept with clarity. Topics include characters, plot, point of view, beginnings, dialogue, tension, endings, revising and polishing. A writer should understand every concept in this book.

This is a good first writing book to read, then the writer can move to other topics and books of interest. I wish I had known about this book two years ago when I first started writing. I’d suggest this book for children ages 8 and up who are interested in writing stories.

    This book really is for beginners, if you've never written and you're good at following instructions and coloring in the lines' this one's for you. I wish her statements about publication were in the beginning instead of the end, but this book IS about writing, after all, not publishing ... so if you're just interested in the craft and you have little to no experience (and if you don't mind reading something a little out dated) then by all means, check this one out!

    Just when I thought I was utterly overwhelmed (and sometimes under-whelmed) with “how to” writing books, this little book came across my desk. The subtitle, as Marion explained at a recent presentation at the Loft Literary Center, was added to attract the high school market. However, she says she originally wrote the book for adults. I enjoyed it and found it inspirational as I tackled writing another packet for the MFA at Hamline.

    This book is a fantastic way to get your arms around the flow and content of story. It works for new writers and as a refresher for people who have been writing for a while. I took notes, to keep the advice as a quick reminder to myself.

    Bauer gets between the lines and gives the reader a how to write a story from beginning to end in its most 'simplistic' terms. I recommend this book to everyone who is considering writing a story, who is currently writing a story and who has written a story.

    Covers a good chunk of basics but a little bland and not particularly inspirational.

    Written in typical Bauer fashion, this is a very basic study of the important elements of writing children's fiction.
