This is a book for young adolescents (ages
10 to 14).  It teaches the skills involved in
both story writing and essay writing.  As far
as stories go, the book explains in detail the
concepts of plot, character, and theme,
giving many examples of each.  As for
essays, students will come to understand
that an essay is just a story about an idea
or an opinion.  It involves an  argument, or
giving the reasons for holding the opinion.  
When you write an essay, you defend your
opinions, and this means you can hold them
with a great deal more confidence.
