Write This Down by Claudia Mills #BookReview

 
 
Twelve-year-old Autumn loves to write. She finds inspiration all around her, especially in Cameron, the dreamy boy in her journalism class who she has a major crush on. Then her older brother, Hunter, who used to watch out for her but has grown distant since he started high school, reads one of her poems about Cameron to Cameron's older brother. They make fun of it and she is devastated. Determined to show her brother how talented she really is, Autumn decides that she is going to become a published author - now! She writes an essay about her changing relationship with her brother, enters it in a contest, and wins, and her dream of publication is within reach. But if her essay is published, everyone will know her family's secrets. Is being published worth hurting those you love? 

This title will be released on September 27, 2016.



Claudia Mills is the acclaimed author of many books for children. She lives in Boulder, Colorado.



Although this book was good a lot of it felt very outdated for this time frame.  If this book would have been set in that time, that being said we don't get a time frame on when this is all taking place.    I loved the creative writing aspect of this book and that Autumn felt very real.  This book did a wonderful job with all the interactions with the relationships in Autumns life.  But the constant talking about Emily Dickinson I think will go over middle graders heads.  As most of them have no idea who she is.  However the flip side of that might be that kids look her up.  And fall in love with even more books.  

I think the best thing for this read is for you to try it yourself and decide.
