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!
