Boys Don't Cry

Or at least, they prefer writers who don't use the zoom lens when boys do cry.

This and other insights in a very good conversation about what makes a book attractive to boys, happening now at Through the Tollbooth.

Thanks, EA.
I'll be blogging about writing books for boys all week.
And now that you gave Through the Tollbooth a shout out I don't have to be jealous of my bud Caroline Hickey over at the Longstockings anymore! How girly is that?

My first MG is written for boys, so this is particularly helpful for me.
