GUY WRITE: WHAT EVERY GUY WRITER NEEDS TO KNOW by Ralph Fletcher. Henry Holt, 2012.
Fletcher offers sound and concrete advice to guys whether they want to become a writer or just do better at writing. Chapters deal with strong details, keeping a journal, being observant, avoiding cliches and other practical topics. Frequently, interviews with writers for boys (Jon Scieszka, Bob Lipsyte to name a couple) elaborate the topic of the chapter. This is a must read for teachers as well. <567>
