Spurred into action, Natalie invents a pen name for herself, and Zoe becomes a self-styled literary agent. But if the girls are to succeed, they'll need support from their wary English teacher, legal advice from Zoe's tough-talking father, and some clever maneuvering to outwit the overbearing editor-in-chief of Shipley Junior Books.
Andrew Clements delights his audience with this story of two irrepressible girls who use their talent, ingenuity and a little cunning to make a young writer's dream come true.

"A standout. Indeed a 'school story,' this is at heart a tale about the love between a father and a daughter." (Publishers Weekly)
"A highly original plot with plenty of intriguing side stories makes this...thoroughly satisfying." (Amazon.com)
We listened to this book in the car on the long drive to vacation. It was enjoyed by our 1st grader, our 4th grader, plus 2 adults.
If you're looking for a family book to take along for the ride, this is a good choice.
We Ioved this story and will listen again. Wonderful narration and inspiring story about the power of kids!
I listened to this book with my son and daughter and we all really enjoyed it. We especially liked the way that the speaker made the story come to life. The characters in this book were great and we were sad to see the story end. We wish that audible carried more Andrew Clements books. We would listen to them all.
