5Q - written in young adult vernacular without a speck of condescension. A very practical guide, and one with a hope of being followed. Lots of personal examples from the author.5P - fun to read but so good it could also work as a text for a creative writing course for teens. Anyone starting NaNoWriMo should have a copy of this.
