Features seven narrators, each with a unique story, and each with a different perspectiveon 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.
