  "As a middle school English teacher, I have watched hundreds of students struggle with writing. The Young Writers' Toolkit helps all students become better, more effective writers. The material provides vivid, descriptive adjectives for hundreds of overused words, and it's so user-friendly. It is a wonderful resource that should be on every teacher's bookshelf."
