Nearly perfect book about a class that has a really special teacher. You have the mean girl, the fat one, the one who's mother made a mistake, the prankster, the smart one....You name it, they are in here. When tragedy hits, the class has to learn to not only forgive each other, but themselves. ( )

This is a great choice for reluctant readers. Told from the perspective of various fifth graders who had a new teacher for the year. ( )

This novel, by Rob Buyea, is an intermediate novel told by seven student's in new teacher, Mr. Terupt's grade five class. He is an inspiring teacher who brings wonder, excitement, and change to the students he teaches. The school year seems to be a positive turning point for every student, even for students who have struggled with school...until the unexpected happens and leaves the whole class in shambles. ( )

What a lovely, special book. This really shows how one person can truly make a difference, and how many lives can be touched. I also really liked the theme that everything happens for a reason, and how we see this all play out with each different student. Each one was so well rounded, and Jeffrey's bits made me tear up. I'm looking forward to reading the sequel and seeing where each character goes, especially the developing relationship between Anna's family and Danielle's family.

This is a great book for upper-elementary kids to read, especially to show them empathy and teach them how to look at something from another person's point of view. Everyone has a story, and we are lucky enough to hear them all as readers. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 038573882X, Hardcover)

It’s the start of fifth grade for seven kids at Snow Hill School. There’s . . . Jessica, the new girl, smart and perceptive, who’s having a hard time fitting in; Alexia, a bully, your friend one second, your enemy the next; Peter, class prankster and troublemaker; Luke, the brain; Danielle, who never stands up for herself; shy Anna, whose home situation makes her an outcast; and Jeffrey, who hates school.
 
Only Mr. Terupt, their new and energetic teacher, seems to know how to deal with them all. He makes the classroom a fun place, even if he doesn’t let them get away with much . . . until the snowy winter day when an accident changes everything—and everyone.
