The BEST thing about this book, hands down, is the fact that I can make copies of the lists I want the kids to have (for example, the "said" replacements) without having to buy a copy of the book for each student.
If you need to help a frustrated writer, or just want to improve your own work, get this book. It is worth every penny!
There is also a section on transition phrases to use. Some of the words are challenging, but my 6th grade student that I tutor wants to use this book every time she writes. Would recommend.
