Dystel & Goderich Literary did an interesting post on what books the agents wished they represented. It's an interesting list. Then they asked if you could claim a published book as your own, what book would it be? I wish I could claim Harry Potter (it's a no brainer). The Weasley Twins and I are bosom friends. I also wish I could put my name on Loser by Jerry Spinelli.
How about you, what book do you wish you could claim as your own?
