Third grade is hard for Zoe who makes up outrageous stories to make herself appear more interesting.  She tells so many "untruths" that her classmates, teacher, and parents doubt everything she says.  When something exciting finally does happen to her  - seeing an eagle nest in her backyard - no one believes her.  Can the understanding school principal and a classmate help Zoe appreciate her special gift of imagination?  Enjoy this chapter book about one very special young student.  (Jeannie Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards)
