Excellent, Intermediate, Young Adult, Short stories, anthology
Been There, Done That focuses on how real-life experiences influence fiction. Whether the event is recounted in exact detail or there is just a hint of reality in the piece of fiction, inspiration is everywhere. Written by young adult and children’s book authors, each author reflects on a memory and tells what really happened, then follows this real account with a piece of fiction that was inspired by their remembrance. There is a mix of short stories and verse as well as mini-graphic novels and illustrated pieces. Readers will be inspired to reflect and write their own stories based on their lives.
