G/A  Fletcher, Ralph.  Guy-Write.  Henry Holt, 2012.  166p.  978-0-8050-9404-6.  15.99.  Hooray for a "how-to" for the fellas.  Male authors including Jon Scieszka, Robert Lipsyte and Jarrett Krosoczka -- who also draws -- give tips, strategies and encouragement on writing skills.  Topical seeds can grow from notebook notes, drawings and/or storyboarding.  Students can elect to enjoy reading this from cover to cover or meander through interviews and writing samples.  Hopefully, a host of English teachers will use this (or make it available) in the classroom as a supplement to the standard class textbook.  E.M.
