Publisher Comments:

Two middle school girls scheme to publish a book in this novel from Andrew Clements, the author of andlt;Iandgt;Frindleandlt;/Iandgt;.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;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.andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; 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 of andlt;Iandgt;realandlt;/Iandgt; grown-ups who are supportive but skeptical. The next bestselling school story may be in their handsand#8212;but can Natalie and Zoe pull off their masquerade?
