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 new friends. 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: Turn my old, recycled, freakish, friendless life into something shiny and new. Paperback. 320 Pages. Printed in the USA.
