Writing Fantastic Fiction
by Jennifer Joline Anderson
Lerner, 2015
56 pages

There are countless books about writing on the market today. Each book addresses the subject in a slightly different way, but all ask the same general question: “How do you write a good story that keeps readers interested?” Jennifer Joline Anderson’s Writing Fantastic Fiction is no different in the question, but approaches it from a middle school grade level. This short book, only five chapters and 56 pages, offers simple suggestions to get your story started and develop an interesting plot, whether the aspiring author is shooting for a novel-length work or a short story.

Information boxes scattered throughout the book offer advice and examples of successful, published authors, new and old. Stephen King, Edgar Allan Poe, and Veronica Roth are a few of the authors featured. Writing Fantastic Fiction explains the differences in points of view, describes how to storyboard, and even advises how to find ideas for stories. It is a good starting place for a young person who wants to try his hand at writing, and can point them in the right direction as they begin.

Writing Fantastic Fiction is geared toward grades six through eight, but even older students and adults that are testing the waters may find some gems in this volume.
