The School Story by Andrew Clements
reviewed by Leila
The School Story by Andrew Clements is a book for young writers. It's about a girl named Natalie who wrote a book, and the process she goes through in order to have it published. Her mom is a publisher and Natalie has to trick her in order to get what she wants.
The best part about The School Story was that it was like children took over. For example, a child writes a book and has a child play as her agent. Another thing that stood out to me was that the agent was more up to the role playing than Natalie, the girl who actually wrote the book. It is also inspirational for children who dream of being writers or authors when they grow up. It was for me.
Andrew Clements has written many books. Some of them are The Landry News, Room One: A Mystery or Two, The Last Holiday, A Week in the Woods, The Report Card, Lunch Money, and many, many more. Clements is a very strange writer and hopefully you will love reading his books.Posted by at February 19, 2010 02:54 PM
