This is really just a book on writing with a paragraph here and there about YA. I know it's "the idiot's guide" and all, but I was hoping for more of a teen focus. It's not that the content was bad; it just wasn't as YA-centric as it should have been to claim that title.

And the cover has little kids in jammies? Seriously?

This is not what YA fiction is about. ( )
