"Writing books that appeal to boys is a joy and a challenge.
Here are some “boots on the ground” perspectives from readers, teachers, and librarians, as well as invaluable insights shared by children’s authors Darren Shan, Ellen Hopkins, Tim Wynne-Jones, and break-out debut novelist, Scott Blagden on how to reach this important readership."

The Best of the Young Adult 'B-Sides': Suzanne Collins, Markus Zusak, and More | Y.A. Australian Books for Boys | Scoop.it

"Before there was The Hunger Games trilogy, there was Suzanne Collins' middle-grade series, Gregor the Overlander. We pay some attention to the best B-sides from a few of our favorite Y.A. and children's authors."
Exploring a favourite author's backlist can be like striking gold.
