why children love genre fiction

One of my favorite writers, Edgar Cantero (Meddling Kids; check out my thoughts on that one here), wrote an article about wishing he'd been a private investigator, learning to love genre fiction, and how children are taught about stories. He wrote this piece for CrimeReads, and you can read it here. And watch for his newest book, This Body's Not Big Enough for Both of Us, out July 31.
