I enjoy all sorts of fiction. What is the book about?
"Beware, you writers who write within;
Be mindful of stoires that you begin;
for every story that has a beginning
May have a middle and an end.
Know this, too, before yo write:
Though day must always lead to night,
Not all beginnings make good tales;
some succeed, while others fail.
let this book its judgment lend
Onwhether and how your beginning ends."
And there are several little story beginnings in it, in different ancient handwritings. The little girl reads them, and when she comes to the last one, it's written by the great aunt's brother who mysteriously dissappeared when he was a kid... then the little girl decided to write down one of her story ideas, but the book takes itself over on what happens next.
We aren't all that far into it, but that's how far we are, and my kids adore it. I have to admit, I think it's good too, but I don't think I'll ever outgrow MG.
I don't usually read MG but that actually sounds quite interesting. I haven't read any book like that before.
