Because of Mr. Terupt - Rob Buyea

Publisher:  Delacorte Books
Pages:  288
Source:  purchased
Genre:  Middle Grade Realistic Fiction
Every teacher wants to make a difference in the lives of their students and Mr. Terupt is no different. He hopes to teach them lessons that go beyond the regular classroom. His methods are somewhat unconventional and don't always have the desired outcome. However, his love and patience for his students is shown when he is accidently injured at school and the students and parents must put aside all of their differences to come together for the teacher they all love. This was a great story told from the perspective of the different students in the class. I thought it was authentic in many ways. This was a book that I read as a panelist for CYBILS and one I highly recommend.
