Book Overview

Selected for the Book Sense Autumn 2006 Children's Pick List

It's not like there's a "find yourself" kit or road signs that say "This way to being your own person." If you're lucky, maybe there's someone who can help you, like a fat lady on the beach might yell "Keep going You can do it " if you're a lousy swimmer and in way over your head. The funny thing is, that person is never who you think it's going to be. It's never who you want it to be.

"How It's Done is a richly woven tale of a young woman who discovers what it really means to be an adult. This story, told with honesty and heart, held me in my seat to the very end. I have discovered a new favorite writer in Christine MacLean."

--Han Nolan, National Book Award winner and author of Send Me Down a Miracle and Dancing on the Edge

"Compelling, realistic... Once you start reading, you won't stop."

--Will Weaver, author of Full Service, a 2005 Horn Book Fanfare winner

"MacLean writes about what can happen once all the rules get broken. I was hooked and could not stop turning pages."

--Laurie Faria Stolarz, bestselling author of the Blue is for Nightmares series
