Escape into the
delightful adventures of nine year old Belinda as she goes
beyond The Wall and into the fascinating worlds of Double

becomes royalty with a boy named Eric, discovers magic marbles
and is given her very own wishing star.
This enchanting story
is intended for children of all ages; anyone with an
imaginative mind who knows there is more to this life than
meets the eye.
Thinking - Writing Section
Pieces of fiction often reveal truths
about life and help deepen our understanding of ourselves and
Reading and enjoying The Wall was
one of the goals in writing this story. But another goal is to
help sharpen the reader's critical thinking skills and provide
an opportunity for the expression of ideas and opinions in the
reader's own writing. The Reading - Thinking - Writing Guide
at the end of the story provides questions to help the reader
appreciate the story more thoroughly.
And maybe, the story of The Wall
will trigger a creative story that is the reader's own, with
the reader's unique characters, situations and endings.
The Wall is a work of fiction, the
product of ten authors' imaginations. This young adult novel
was written and produced to celebrate the 80th anniversary of
the Phoenix Writers' Club.
The project involved ten authors--one
started the story, passed her chapter on to the next author to
continue the story, and so on, until the story was completed.
An editor compiled the chapters and added a Reading --
Thinking -- Writing section to help readers understand and
appreciate the story more thoroughly, and perhaps even spark
the reader's imagination to create a story.
The storytellers were very enthusiastic
working on this project. They are real people, people who have
dreams and aspirations, enjoy walking barefooted and wishing
on stars, thrill over small things and collect just about
everything, discover new worlds and journey through time, love
being daring and adventurous.
