Realistic fiction sounds like an oxymoron. But, Huck tries to explain this in the first part of this week's reading.
When I was young, I didn't like to read anything. Reading was too difficult. But, if I was forced to read, I picked realistic fiction. I liked Judy Blume and other authors who wrote about kids my age with normal problems like schoolwork, friends and relationships, and parents. Problems I could see myself having. I didn't care for sci-fi or fantasy at all. I didn't get it. I didn't want to have to work to imagine new worlds as read was hard enough without the extra hassle.
What realistic fiction and authors were your favorites and why?
