Review:
Natalie and Zoe have been best friends since kindergarten; now they are in the sixth grade at a private school in New York City. Natalie, whose mother is a children's book editor, is the observer and writer; Zoe, whose father is a big-city lawyer, is the talker and the planner of this spunky duo. When Natalie writes an exceptional story, Zoe moves into action. She uses a pen name so she can submit the manuscript to Natalie's mother. The author makes this funny, implausible venture into the world of publishing plausible.
