"A book that is full of surprises ...Triumphant enough to make readers cheer; touching enough to make them cry."-Kirkus, STARRED Review
If only getting a new life were as easy as getting a new notebook.
But it's not.
It's the first day of school for all the kids in the neighborhood. But not for me. I'm homeschooled. That means nothing new. No new book bag, no new clothes, and no friends old or new. The best I've got is this notebook. I'm supposed to use it for my writing assignments, but my dad never checks. Here's what I'm really going to use it for:
Ratchet's Top Secret Plan
Project Goal: turn my old, recycled, freakish, friendless, motherless life into something shiny and new.
This year, I'm going make something change.
"One of the freshest new voices I've heard in a while...A book for young readers to enjoy, discuss, then read all over again, this debut novel is a winner."-Augusta Scattergood, Author of GLORY BE, an Amazon Best Middle Grade Novel of 2012
