YOUNG ADULT NOVEL/YOUNG ADULT MEMOIR
Young Adult Novels & Young Adult Memoirs: Read and Write Books That Define You. Smart, Honest, Engaging, and Brilliant.
Young Adult/Adult Memoirs:
THE TROUBLE IN ME predates HOLE IN MY LIFE and explores just when and how I began to make decisions for myself which were self-destructive. It explores self-identity, and the self-loathing I had as a teen which led me to abandon my better values and ethics and attempt to transform myself into an entirely different person. Instead of ‘finding’ myself I preferred to ‘invent’ myself which led to a downward spiral of trouble which is written about in HOLE IN MY LIFE, my teen prison memoir, which received a Pritz Honor and a Sibert Honor. This volume is also listed as an adult book given the subject matter.
I have worked with teachers and students throughout the country and overseas in over a thousand schools. I have creative writing and literature presentations designed to meet the needs of all interests and grade levels. I provide hands-on Teacher In-Service instruction specifically designed for a creative writing and literature curriculum. For a visit to your school or conference please email me at email@example.com or through my webpage at JackGantos.com. Thank you, Jack
