Newberry Medal winner Jack Gantos shares advice for how to be the best brilliant writer in this funny and practical creative writing guide perfect for middle-grade readers. With the signature wit and humor that have garnered him legions of fans, award-winning author Jack Gantos instructs young writers on using their “writing radar” to find story ideas in their own lives. Charting his own misadventures as an adolescent writer, Gantos inspires readers to build confidence and establish good writing habits as they create, revise, and perfect their stories. Pop-out text boxes highlight key tips, alongside dozens of Gantos's own hilarious illustrations and original stories. More than just a how-to guide, Writing Radar is a celebration of the power of storytelling and an ode to the characters who—many unwittingly—inspired Gantos's own writing career.
