After a generation out of print, the original Choose Your Own Adventure series is back. First published in 1979, the books let readers remix their own stories – and face the consequences.
The article is written in Choose-Your-Own style, too! I loved these books as a child. They were so much fun and actually were probably the only books that inspired me to try writing. I remember trying to write one when I was in grade 8, but I gave up because it was so difficult and wrote something else instead. I also remember my brother wrote one 2 years earlier when he was in grade 8 (we had the same teacher, and so the same assignment). I found his story again a few years ago and kept it, though I think it’s lost now.
Anyway, I think it’s great that kids will now get the chance to experience Choose Your Own Adventures just like we did!
