About this item

Two middle school girls scheme to publish a book in this novel from Andrew Clements, the author ofFrindle.Natalie's best friend, Zoe, is sure that the novel Natalie's written is good enough to be published. But how can a twelve-year-old girl publish a book? Natalie's mother is an editor for a big children's publisher, but Natalie doesn't want to ask for any favors.Then Zoe has a brilliant idea: Natalie can submit her manuscript under a pen name, with Zoe acting as her literary agent. But it's not easy for two sixth graders to put themselves over as grown-ups, even with some help from a couple ofreal grown-ups who are supportive but skeptical. The next bestselling school story may be in their hands—but can Natalie and Zoe pull off their masquerade?
Twelve-year-old Natalie wanted to get her book published but didn't want special treatment given to her by her assistant editor mother, thus with the use of a pseudonym and some sly maneuvering, the book is put into print on its own merits where its successful reception amazes everyone.
