"As of right now, I have a book club formed with my students from tenth to twelve grade. They pick the books and we read them. Actually, they take turns choosing the books with the promise that we will finish any book that has been picked out of respect for the picker. In my place of work, I have had the wonderful opportunity to be trusted. I asked for a set of books, and if the budget allows, they are purchased. My closet consists of wonderful, new fiction and nonfiction that is written for a 21st century teenager."
At the heart of every sequel is the narrating character’s reaction to the preceding scene’s disaster. This is where the author gets the opportunity to dig around inside his character’s emotional and mental processes and find out what he’s really made of. The scene is about external action; the sequel is about internal reaction. The sequel will sometimes be entirely confined to the POV character’s mind; other times, it will be dramatized through action or dialogue.

"First, kids do love non-fiction. In fact, many students told me they prefer non-fiction to fiction. After a lengthy discussion, I believe it comes down to usefulness. While fiction allows a certain fantasy and escape (and a large degree of vicarious living), non-fiction teaches them about the world."
