The first two novels in Printz winner Aidan Chambers’s Dance Seuence are at last available in a fresh format that will draw teens to these classics of YA literature Literature is crap Fiction is anyway A pretense Ersatz When you read a story you are pretending a lie Morgan  What begins as a game for Ditto the refutation of his friend Mor.

Gan’s Charges Against Literature uickly escalates into a multilevel challenge After Ditto’s father suffers a heart attack in the middle of one of their fights Ditto decides he has to get away for a few days to sort out his life His chronicle of his experiences becomes his rebuttal to Morgan’s Charges But is this thought provoking exami. I think this is out of the 3 I ve read so far Aidan s most abstract work And I think in order to give this story it s depth it has to be that way And I really like how creative he gets with the way he writes it The story was very short for me It only took me two days to read but it was a good story nonetheless What I took from it is that in writing fiction it must be personal and come from personal experiences in order for it to be valid and meaningful As this is one of my major philosophies on writing I really loved the end of this book

    Not as good as This Is All of course or Dance On My Grave Ditto and Morgan remind me of Phineas and Gene but maybe that's because I was reading both books around the same time?
