Even though Mr. Henshaw's responses are not as frequent as the boy's letters, Leigh learns quite a bit. He learns writers need to write (often) to become better at what they do. He learns to develop his own unique voice. And he learns that writing about his struggles—his parents' divorce, missing his dad, a bully at school—can help him deal with some of the pain he's feeling.
Ink sketches and letter entries make this poignant piece fresh, approachable, and a joy to read.
