       In The Magic Words, editor Cheryl B. Klein guides writers 
       on an enjoyable and practical-minded voyage of their own, 
       from developing a saleable premise for a novel to finding 
       a dream agent. She delves deep into the major elements of 
       fiction - intention, character, plot, and voice - while 
       addressing important topics like diversity, world-building,
       and the differences between middle-grade and YA novels. In
       addition, the book's excercises, questions, and 
       straightforward rules of thumb help writers apply these 
       insights to their own creative works. WIth its generous 
       tone and useful tools for story analysis and revision, The
       Magic Words is an essential handbook for writers of 
       children's and young adult fiction.
