In "How to Write a Novel," Aristotle "Aris" Thibodeau lives with her mom and little brother. Her father died when she was really little and she misses him every day. Her brother tries to hurt himself quite frequently and so he has to get therapy, which costs a lot of money. Because of this, her family does not have a lot of money, so Ares decides that she is going to write a novel in 30 days, make a ton of money, and get her family back on its feet.

Opinion: 

To be honest, the book was dull to me. The situation in Aris' family was tragic and depressing. I struggled to stay engaged with this story and I did not feel connected to the characters. I think that readers who enjoy realistic fiction and do not mind dysfunctional families might be more connected to this story.
