Dear Mr. Andrew Clements,
Hi! PLEASE READ THIS LETTER!!! I need help! My name is Christina. My best friends, Nora and Alyssa, and I have some questions, but let us first get down to the basics. I will tell a story and explain it to you late. DO NOT stop reading. Anyway, here’s my story.
It all started when I, Christina, started to read. I read and read, thousands of books, but I never really thought of writing a book until 5th grade (by the way I am currently in the 6th grade). In fifth grade, I had this great dream that was a great idea for a book. Then, my mo bought me a gift on my birthday of July 4, 2006 (yes, I am born on Independence Day). My mom bought me several books, but one will change my life forever its name was The School Story. After reading that book, I got so motivated in starting to write my book because of YOU. But now, I need some help.
I am in the mists of my book, and like Natalie, I hired my best friends (Nora and Alyssa) to me my agents. I even have a pen name like Natalie or Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain) it’s Amy Smith, but Smith isn’t my real name by the way. However, there is one problem Mr. Clements, it’s that I am in REALITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In The School Story, you gave us a lot of information, but Natalie got it easy. Her mom was an editor. Natalie could just sneak into her mom’s files anytime she wanted! My parents are NOT involved with publishing companies at all, and neither are any of my friends’ parents. Another problem I have is telling an adult. None of my teachers are very, you know, not as good as the teacher in The School Story. That is why I am writing to you. I NEED your HELP!!!! According to my agents findings the closest Scholastic Publishing Company to where I live is in New York City on Broadway Street. By the way, I live on Long Island, New York.
Mr. Clements, I really want to get my book published and so do my friends. I will send you my book so far (but just to warn you, it’s a girly book). I will only send this to you after you write back. As you can see, there is no return address on the envelope. You will have to e-mail us; we have set up an e-mail address just for the purpose of book matters and of course talking to you. Thank you if you decide help us!! You really have to!


P.S- Our e-mail address is author[email protected] PLEASE write back as soon as possible. I need REALITY tips!!!

Dear Andrew Clements, I really enjoyed this book. I love how well you can connect with children. It is kinda like you can read our minds. I have always loved your books. My goal is to read all of them. I am actually reading Things Hoped For right now. I love how Bobby comes into this book. I could read this book all day. I really hope that maybe you could have a book signing or something in my hometown, somewhere in O'Fallon Missouri, so I could Talk to you about your books. If you are to busy please email me at, [email protected], that would be great. I no you are a busy man and you don't have time for an eleven year old that wants to be a writer just like you.I would like to show you this book I wrote in fifth grade, My teachers said it could have been in the stores, but he was probably just being nice. My book was called The Haunted House, it is about a girl who comes intact with the dead. The girl must save her parents from the dead and it has tones of surprises. In third grade I won an award for Young Writers, my book was called The Witch on the Block, I actually got seventh place but still thats pretty good for a third grader. So please Mr. Clements i Really love all your books. You are my favorite author, I would love to speak to you.

Love, Ceile Cassidy
