Summary: A beginner book for writers.
This book is a very useful handbook for beginning writers. I would absolutely recommend for teens who are just trying their hands at creative writing.
For someone who has been writing for some time I found the book much less helpful. At this stage I expect that most books will be 99% things I have heard of before but I expect there to be 1% new ideas. I really hope to take away some pearl of wisdom from every book I read. I don’t feel like I got my 1% out of this book. It was very short and very basic.
Overall, if you are writing your very first story this book might be a nice starting point. If you have a pretty good grasp on story basics this book can be skipped.
