"Scribble scratch, Scribble scratch." This amazing book is about a girl named Natalie Nelson, who thinks that her book is not going to get published. But Zoe her best friend, also her agent, convinces her to send it in. Natalie's mom is an editor but Natalie uses a fake name because she doesn't want to ask for favors. At the end Zoe does something very unexpected. Read the book to find out.

I thought this book was interesting, unique, and fun because you never want to put the book down. The character Zoe reminds me of my cousins because when they mean no, they mean no! I like Zoe because she took control of everything.

I recommend this book to people who like to read fun and exciting books, because this author uses fun, exciting language. Also the characters: Zoe, Natalie, Ms. Clayton are very unpredictable.
