The Pen Is Mightier than the Sword

Series: Amazing Days of Abby Hayes (Book #6)
by Anne Mazer

Abby's class is starting a newspaper, and Abby's ready to be the star reporter. Then she's picked to write an advice column. Abby can't imagine giving advice to anyone when her own life is out of control! And she definitely doesn't want to be known as Dear Abby. Just as she suspects, the column gets Abby in some trouble with her classmates. But, surprisingly, it also gives her a chance to help a friend.
