Write This Down by Claudia Mills

Grades 6-8

write this down

Twelve-year-old Autumn loves to write. So much so, that it is her dream to be published, and she doesn’t want to wait even a few years! She has a moleskine notebook that she writes everything in – poems, stories, journal entries, and whatever else is on her mind. She especially loves to write about (and to) her crush, Cameron, a boy in her journalism class. Autumn’s older brother Hunter is friends with Cameron’s older brother, and Hunter finds Autumn’s notebook and shares it with him. Autumn is mortified. How will she ever face Cameron again? Then she gets an assignment to write a “personal essay” for her journalism class. She decides to write it about her rocky relationship with Hunter. Then, to get back at him, she decides she wants to publish it, too. She enters it into a contest. If she wins, she has the chance for it to be published. But is she willing to risk spilling all of her family’s secrets to be published?
