Sam’s stress level is at an all-time high, and it’s affecting the quality of her Dear Know-It-All column—and her bedtime!
Sam can’t sleep! She has two book reports to write, plus a big science test, an article for the Cherry Valley Voice newspaper, and her anonymous Dear Know-It-All column…all due the same week. It’s too much, so Sam is stressing out. And it doesn’t help that her crush, Michael Lawrence, comments that the Dear Know-It-All columns aren’t as good as usual. Sam knows worrying won’t help, but that doesn’t keep her from waking up in the middle of the night. What can she do to get some rest from her stress?
Rachel Wiseloves to give advice. When she’s not editing or writing children’s books, which she does full-time at a publisher in New York, she’s reading advice columns in newspapers, magazines, and blogs—and is always sure her advice would be better! Her dream is to someday have her own talk show, where she could share her wisdom with millions of people at once, but for now she’s happy to dole out advice in small portions in Dear Know-It-All books.
