I found this book to be a little bit of a mixed bag.On the good side It s absolutely chock full of stellar advice Klein brings an obvious wealth of experience to the table and she shares in gems of solid detail, instead of the often useless generalities found in similar books Almost everything she has to say is of worth to writers of all stripes, not just YA writers.On the bad side I found myself continually frustrated by the lack of organization in the presentation of the material The chapters are presented basically verbatim from blog posts and conference talks with little attempt to eliminate redundancies or coordinate subjects In the end, however, I ll both be keeping the book for my private library and recommending to others, since its insights finally outweighed the aggravation of their presentation. Second Sight is an instructive collection of blog posts and speeches given by editor Cheryl Klein at writer s conferences The book offers helpful examples and contains several writing exercises What sets this book apart from other writing guides is Klein s experience working as a continuity editor on the American editions of the sixth and seventh Harry Potter books she often discusses J.K Rowling s narrative style and examines the HP books in order to teach successful storytelling.
