Are you a reader who looks to find the ‘next best thing’? Always on the lookout for the newest cutting edge author? Then look no further than I’m Gonna Need a Pen. This small tome is a compilation of short stories written by middle school students who were given the assignment of taking a folkloric tale and crafting a short story around it. All are well though out and written in the students’ own words. And while all are interesting there are several that shine like uncut diamonds.
Author/teacher Heather Owens has done a fine job of working with these young minds to produce an in-depth peek into their imaginations.
