Synopsis

Features seven narrators, each with a unique story, and each with a different perspective on what makes their teacher so special.

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.

"No one is perfect in this feel-good story, but everyone benefits, including sentimentally inclined readers."--Kirkus Reviews

    Because this is such a good book

    Omg i just borrowed this book for something to read. I mean it looked good but i dident think it would be one of the best books ive ever read. I am amazed at how well bob buyea has set the story out. Every page had me engayed to the story. The characters tell you the story from their perspective in other words their point of veiw. You get to know the characters and you feel the same way as them at times. When was about seventy percent through the only words that i could use to describe the book to my school libraian was " such a moving and sad story that is very meaningful". Although it had a happy ending. The characters might remind you of your own friends or even you. I am definetly lookkng foward to reading the other books in the series.
