    I second The First Five Pages as the best I've read yet. BUT there is also Story Structure Architect by Victoria Lynn Schmidt that gives great info on the things like the 21 genres to graph lines of the feminine journey compared to the masculine journey, POV and much more, plus it is concise and easy to use as a reference. They are two different things.

    I actually preferred tge Breakout Novel WORKBOOK, but maybe that's just me. And it blew me away, definitely helping me get to the next level. Awesome!

    That said, I don't think it's an entry level book. First stop on the journey is Lawrence Block, Sol Stein, and that Writers Digest series that includes Scene and Structure, Plot, etc.

    Hunger Games has a terrific 1st person POV but some silliness, plotwise, towards the end.
