How does a smart, spunky kid deal with the trials and tribulations of being a middle child? She writes about it-that's how! When nine-year-old Lizzie finds her mom's old typewriter in a closet, she decides to try her hand at storytelling: For a full year, she'll type out the tales of her life. That is, if she can find time between being pestered by her baby sister and teased by her older brother. The middle-child life isn't easy, but if anybody can make it sound like fun, Lizzie can. Her stories of swimming lessons, a yard sale, secret codes, copy cats, and puppy dogs are packed with charm and humor. Even Lizzie's brother is finally forced to agree.
