Nick Allen is always making trouble in his classroom but when he gets to fifth grade his language arts teacher Miss Granger, knows all the tricks. She is strict and likes everything in order. When Nick has a great idea to make a new word ?frindle?, Miss Granger is less than happy.This is where all the action begins.

I found this book fascinating because what happens is amazing. If you like great books with action , school , cliffhangers this is definately the book for you. This book reminds me of my third grade teacher. After reading this book, my class had an idea to make up a new word - ?pindle?.
