Adventure novel for preteens.
No magic, time warps, dragons and other imagination stretchers. All believable, all possible and hopefully just good storytelling.
Why Write a Novel for Preteens
I am the dad of a preteen. This is my attempt at writing a novel with completely original characters, believable actions and reasonable outcomes.
I want to keep it true-to-life, something that she and her friends may actually experience … yet still be a stretch.
Doable? I am 24 parts (18+K words) in and so far so good … I think. Thanks for reading.
Novel for Middle Schoolers
This book is designed for preteens (middle schoolers) to read on their own or perhaps have a parent or grandparent read to them.
I go for metaphorical language that teaches without preaching. If I have to explain what it means, I didn’t tell the story well.
My hope is that the reader will stop and think from time … “That’s kind of like …”
In every case, I hope that the reader will see that there are lessons to be learned from the most unlikely of places … and … teachers.
