    I think we have to respect and trust teens more than we do. Wish me luck! Kirkus Reviews, December 1,p. That sounds like fun! I soon received offers from other publishers.

    A great cultural mix, depending upon what side of the Parkway you stood. When I was a child and a young woman, volume was important. Williams-Garcia adds lots of good sound effects, splashed across the pages in electric color by Reed: "Bang-O-Bok! Joyce made poor choices based on her poor self-image.

    The Botanical Gardens. I intended to write a story about our failure to help an African American girl and the reluctant friendship she forms with a young man. Why or why not? Set during one of the most tumultuous years in recent American history, one crazy summer is the heartbreaking, funny tale of three girls in search of the mother who abandoned them—an unforgettable story told by a distinguished author of books for children and teens, Rita Williams-Garcia.

What advice do you have for beginning authors? Gayle in Like Sisters is a teen mother who has had an abortion, but the story follows her and not the abortion.

My next sale was a short story to Essence Magazine as a junior in college. With Fast Talk I learned a hard lesson, which was to breathe and walk away from the work.
