Frindle by Andrew Clements

When Nick decides to replace the word 'pen' with the word 'frindle,' it seems like he's bitten off more than he can chew! It started as a way to match wits with his language-loving teacher, but before long it's a national phenomenon. As with many of Clements' other books, the kids are spirited and enterprising and the adults are well-meaning and multi-dimensional. It's an fun look at the fluidity of language and the power of a grass-roots campaign.
