From the best-selling author of Frindle, The Landry News, and The Janitor's Boy.
Twelve-year-old Natalie has written a fabulous book and is determined to get it published. Luckily, she has connections to the publishing world--her mother is an assistant editor at a major publisher. However, Natalie doesn't want any favors and doesn't want her mom to know that she wrote a novel. So she and her best friend Zoë devise a plan. Natalie uses a pseudonym, Zoë pretends to be an agent, and with a little help from an English teacher, the girls succeed. Not only does Natalie's mom publish the novel, but it exceeds everyone's expectations and becomes a bestseller!
The School Story (Unabridged)
This is a terrific book. Andrew Clement's characters are always well defined, strong individuals. The characters in this book show a great deal of talent, ingenuity, and determination, and serve as positive role-models for others. While this book is a bit fantastical, it is still believable. It is an enjoyable book with a happy ending.
