Inspired by a social experiment/writing contest created by children's book author Cynthea Liu (Paris Pan Takes the Dare, The Great Call of China, and Writing for Children and Teens: A Crash Course), eighteen young writers in grades 2-7 take a dare to better themselves for seven days, then write about it. The stories range from the warm to the wise to the sublimely hilarious. In this wonderfully charming and inspiring anthology, readers get a glimpse into tween minds as they struggle with issues like sibling rivalry, self-esteem, bullying, friendship, and many more. For educators, this little book serves as a great jumping off point for character education or units concerning the personal essay. Not only will students relate to the stories, they'll walk away inspired to write with the beautiful voices they already possess. Maybe they'll even think of their own dares and write about it. Information on how young writers can be included in future volumes of this anthology is also provided.

Bear can do almost anything. His one-paw pawstand is perfection. He can solve the trickiest of equations. He can even out-build a brigade of beavers. But the one thing Bear can't do? Ride a bike. Bear tries everything to help him learn: library books, training wheels and super-cheers from his fellow animal friends. But all of those fail to get poor Bear on two wheels. The situation is looking unbearable-but an unexpected mishap might be just the thing that propels Bear to bike on!
