    I like this book because it shows how kid can do stuff they never thought they would do. I think you would like this book if you would like to know how friendship works and if you would like to be sitting on the edge of your seat.

        This book is about a girl named Natalie, who is trying to publish her book. Since she's too young and her mom is a editor, she used her pen name, Cassandra Day. At the end, Natalie shows that she is Cassandra Day and they party! I loved this book!

          This book teaches a good message which is to get out of your comfort zone and try new things, and to never give up.

            I'm trying to publish a book right now, but it's hard because my mother isn't an editor like Nathlie's. but you don't need to convince a lawer to publish a book for kids because there are Legal sites for kids to publish stories.

                I loved this book so so so so so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is a great realistic fiction story. It is about a kid who writes a terrific story, and then tries to get it published. I think this book is meant more for girls then boys because the main character is a girl. This is my favorite Andrew Clements book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think the message in this book is ''Never give up''. I hope you like it!!!!!!!!!!!!

                      i went to the library and got this book because i like Andrew Clements other books. anyway, i picked it up and read the first 2 chapters and then was sucked in! i felt like natalie using the fake name to get it published. She is a brave girl and a determend one too. i would recomend it to people who love a great read ana great chapter book. it might look thick but it is awesome! Besides, never judge a book by its cover no matter what!
