Description - The School Story by Andrew Clements
Two twelve year old kids hit upon an audacious plan to break into publishing. A fun, feelgood story that has plenty of reality mixed in with the fantasy - from the acclaimed author of 'Frindle'. Twelve-year-old Natalie Nelson is writing an amazing story about school life called "The Cheater". Her best friend Zoe reckons it' brilliant - it should be a breeze to get it published, especially since Natalie's mum is an editor for one of the biggest publishing houses around. While Natalie knows better, and doesn't want any special favours, Zoe won't take no for an answer. She concocts a stupendous scheme to get "The Cheater" into print. First, Natalie must come up with a cool penname for herself so her mum won't know it's her. Then Zoe will invent a literary agency and appoint herself its star agent to sell Natalie's book. By sticking at it, sticking together - and with the help of a supportive but weary teacher - it's a daring scheme that might just work...
