Ten authors of children's and young adult books were invited to submit stories on the theme of growing up. Some responded with personal stories, while others wrote a story on the theme. The authors are Avi, Francesca Lia Block, Susan Cooper, James Howe, Reeve Lindbergh, Nicholasa Mohr, Walter Dean Myers, Mary Pope Osborne, Katherine Paterson and Laurence Yep. A charming photo reproduced in black-and-white from the writer's childhood opens each writer's contribution. Brief author biographies can be found in the back. (Ages 9-16)
