REVIEW:  Jordan Rosenfeld's How to Write A Page Turner is one of those books on writing that you need by your side at all times when writing and editing your book!  What a great resource for beginning and intermediate writers!  There is something to learn and take away from every section.  Rosenfeld mainly focuses on developing tension (also called suspense) throughout the story, not just in the scenes.  She breaks it down into four parts: Essential Tension Elements, Tension with Characters, Plot Tension, and Tension in Exposition.  There are so many great examples within each of these sections.  Rosenfeld really gives you a well-defined understanding of how to apply them to your dialogue, scenes, character development, overall plot, and settings.  

Overall, this book provides a lot of key nuggets on taking your writing to the next level. I highly recommend this book to writers who need help in igniting that page-turning spark with their readers.  Perfect for teens and adults!  Definitely a must-have in print!
