Book Review & Giveaway: Fiction At My Fingertips By CS Reid

Fiction At My Fingertips
By CS Reid
Genre: Middle Grade/Young Adult/Fiction
Publication Date: December 19, 2014

Lois is a voracious writer. To say that she is a budding writer, would be the understatement of the millennium. Recounts about her family vacations, ooze out the very pores of her skin before becoming transplanted in the pages of her trusty journal.

When her language arts teacher, Ms. Williams, informs the class that they will be participating in The Hillcrest Young Adult Golden Quill Contest for Fiction, Lois is catapulted into the stratosphere. However, an unfortunate mishap could derail Lois’ literary debut.

My Review

Fiction At My Fingertips is such a breath of fresh air for young adult readers. I really enjoyed how the author focuses the entire story around writing and the collaboration with the budding writers. We can sense the excitement for writing through the characters and of course, a twist is tossed into the mix that shakes up Lori, the protagonist. One of my favorite things about this book is how the author chose to title her chapters. Each chapter reflects a step in the writing process. A fun & unique read - I highly recommend it!
