The name of our book is The Word Eater. This book is mostly about a worm with magic powers. A sixth grade girl named Lerner Chance owns this worm. The main characters in this magical book are Lerner, Fip (the worm), Bobby, and Reba. The setting of this book is the CLEVELAND PARK MIDDLE SCHOOL which Lerner Chance attends. The worm eats words, and when he eats words they shimmer and then disappear. That was an important detail in the book.
