The School Story

Natalie Nelson is twelve years old and she wrote a book about school.  She didn't write The School Story, that was Andrew Clements.  She wrote a book called The Cheater.  She let a fast talking-doesn't -take-no-for-an-answer friend of hers read it.   That friend was named Zoe Riesman (pronounced "Rice-man" although she changes the pronunciation to "Race-man" to fool Natalie's mom...sorry, we're getting ahead of ourselves).  Zoe is convinced that she can get Natalie's book published.  Natalies mom is an editor so Zoe thought it would be a piece of cake.  However, they run it some unexpected problems.  

Once you open The School Story you will not be able to put it down.  Andrew Clements always writes good books and this one is no exception.  In fact, I personally think it's one of his best.  If you like authors like Dan Gutman, Andy Griffiths, Judy Blume or Beverly Cleary then you will definitely like The School Story.  I would also recommend his book Frindle.
