From School Library Journal

Gr 4-8-This collection of essays by and interviews with writers for children and young adults is a rich source of material for teachers who want to expose their students to a variety of diary, journal, and notebook-keeping practices. 
From David Harrison's manila envelopes crammed full of clippings and notes to Naomi Shihab Nye's notebooks, which she describes as "a useful jumble...a secret room," Graham documents the writers' habits and practices.
Each chapter focuses on a different person and begins with a childhood photograph and a short essay about his or her journal writing, followed by material from an interview with the author.
The interviews are generally chock-full of interesting, salient details, but by repeating much of the information (in some incidences, almost to the exact words) in her introductory piece, Graham dilutes their power.
The book includes 27 authors with a good balance between female and male voices, but Jacqueline Woodson is the only nonwhite author included.-Barbara Scotto, Michael Driscoll School, Brookline, MA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information, Inc.

  •     Not just for journal keepers and writers, but for anyone who dares to reveal their emotions and ideas as a tool to understanding themselves better through the written word. I really enjoyed reading this book and got a lot out of it personally.
