Welcome to the Growing Up Aimi world. This is a How To Book - A father, retired, and his 11-year old daughter collaborated to write a novel - first time for both. This How To book is best read along with the novel, but does not need to be. This how to book can be a standalone as well. How long did it take? How did the brainstorming work? Who's fingers did most of the key pounding? What about proofreading and editing? Who were the beta readers? What about the illustrations? What about disagreements in the story? How were the disagreements resolved? HINT: In this booklet is an alternate ending to the book - The Giant Forest. You are welcome to take a look and decide which you like best - Mia's version or the dad's version? Learn how to - Join Team Mia or team Dad.
