Very Informative

I learned a lot about writing YA books from Steve and Dani Acorn. They offered good strategies for outlining using specific checkpoints. Their chapter on scene and sequel was especially helpful to me and my current project. They also provided specific examples from YA novels. I’m very glad I purchased this on Audible.
