Zoe is always making up wild stories. When something exciting really does happen to her--like an eagle nesting in her backyard--no one wants to believe her!

Third-grader Zoe's lies are big stinking whoppers from outer space that no one believes. "I can't get detention," Zoe tells the principal. "I'm a volunteer firefighter." Or, "I'm allergic to gravity." LOL. People around her get so frustrated. But Zoe lies because she thinks she is nobody special in a world of somebodies, never mind that ground-breaking imagination. Zoe is honest about the family's nuclear toilet, but no one believes it has a flusher like an atomic bomb. Or that an eagle did land in the pretend nest she made out of her mother's wok. The kid's got sass and pizzazz and you just want somebody to recognize her truth rather than the popular kids' designer clothes.
I think everyone should read this book.You can learn a lesson.Zoe learned that if you lie you get in deeper trouble then when you tell the truth.And I think all kids everywhere should read this book and learn the lesson.Because its happening to chidren all over the world.So by it for your kids.
