Natalie Nelson writes a good story called "The Cheater". Her friend, Zoe, thinks she should have her mother read the story. Natalie's mother is an editor for a big publishing company. Natalie does not want any special favors from her mother. Natalie and Zoe use their teacher, Zoe's lawyer father and a pen name, Cassandra Day, to get Natalie's mom to read the story without her knowing who is the author. If this scheme works, how will Natalie sign the contract and break the news to her mother?  (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2003-2004)
