Title

Janet Fredericksen's letter to Robert Cormier

Description

In this two-page, handwritten letter by Janet Fredericksen to Robert Cormier, the adult writer explains that she encountered the book, After the First Death, in a Children's Literature class. Almost angrily, she demands to know who his audience is and why the book is a YA book. Toward the end of the letter, she relates how engaging the book is and applauds him as a writer. In a postscript, her daughter has asked who she was writing to - then said: "he's the guy that wrote I am the Cheese." The writer indicated that she intended to read that book soon.
