At the end of Frindle by Andrew Clements, Nick is a 21-year-old young man in his second year of college. He becomes very wealthy as he becomes eligible to access the money in the “frindle” trust fund that his parents set up when he was in fifth grade. Nick offers money to his parents and brother who at first reject his offer but then they are convinced to accept his gifts. Mrs. Granger, fifth grade teacher, sends him a package that holds a dictionary that includes the word “frindle” in it. He sends an anonymous letter to Mrs. Granger in which he informs her that he endowed one million dollars to establish a scholarship at the Lincoln Elementary School in her name. In the note, he includes a writing instrument that he encourages her to call whatever she wishes.
