Frindle
Andrew Clements

Nick really just likes to liven things up at school -- and he's always had plenty of great ideas. Who says a pen has to be called a pen? Why not call it a frindle? Things begin innocently enough as Nick gets his friends to use the new word. Soon the school is in an uproar, and Nick has become a local hero. His teacher wants Nick to put an end to all this nonsense, but the new word is spreading across the country, and there's nothing he can do to stop it.
