Summary: A twelve year old girl, Natalie Nelson, has a mother in the editing and publishing industry. When she writes a book , her friend Zoe convinces her to publish it, but Natalie doesn’t want her mom to know she wrote it. The two girls – using a pen name, a helpful teacher, and a rented office – pretend to be an adult author and a book agent respectively to get the manuscript noticed.

Thoughts: When I was younger, I loved this book. I actually haven’t read it in years, but during an annoyingly sleepless night, I grabbed it to keep me company. It’s a fun book, but I wish getting something published was that easy.
