Critic Reviews

"The trouble with 'how to' books on creativity is that they usurp creativity. Not so with this very insightful guide for YA writing. If it doesn’t become a standard or even a classic among reference books, it will be an oversight. Janet Schrader-Post and Elizabeth Fortin-Hinds have all the marinated smarts and credentialed experience to pull this off, and they do! No dictated wisdom from on high here, no grafted creativity, The Young Adult Writer’s Journey is accessible, motivational and a clear map that leaves plenty of room to discover for anyone wanting to explore their creative side." (Thomas Sullivan, Pulitzer-nominated author of The Phases of Harry Moon

Not too useful

Overall, I found this book to have little specific advice. It may be that I have read enough craft books to negate any benefit this would have, but I was hoping for some better insight into the YA genre specifically. Most of the advice seems intuitive and so not terribly innovative or useful.
