Spurred into action, Natalie invents a
pen name for herself, and Zoe becomes a self-styled literary agent. But if the
girls are to succeed, they’ll need support from their wary English teacher,
legal advice from Zoe’s tough-talking father, and some clever maneuvering to
outwit the overbearing editor-in-chief of Shipley Junior Books.
