Because of Mr. Terupt

Told in first person by several students in Mr. Terupt’s 5th grade class. This was a very quick read with a big message about what is really important in life, with an easy to understand lesson of why people act the way they do. Individual character traits are represented: the bully, the new girl, the goof-off, the smart kid, the shy guy, the outcast, and the fat girl. It was all tied up in a neat little package, but I enjoyed it and I think younger readers especially will.
