The School Story

This book is amazing!!! You must read this book!!

The School Story

This was my absolutely favorite book when I was about 10-12 -- it's what inspired me to try and be an author myself.


After Natalie's father dies, she is feeling very lonely and out-of-place in life. But after her best friend Zoe reads one of Natalie's stories, she convinces Natalie to go undercover and have her (Natalie's) mother edit and publish the book. A very satisfying plot with a heartfelt message: Nothing is impossible.

The school story

The school story is all about two girls one named Nora and the other named Zoe. When Nora sees her mom working really in a publishing office. She decides she wanted to make her own book and Zoe convinces her. See what happens later in the school story.
