Seven
students are about to have their lives changed by one amazing teacher in this
school storysequel filled with unique characters every reader can
relate to.


It's the start of a new year at Snow Hill School, and
seven students find themselves thrown together in Mr. Terupt's fifth grade
class. 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.

They don't have much in common, and they've never gotten along. Not until a
certain new teacher arrives and helps them to find strength inside
themselves-and in each other. But when Mr. Terupt suffers a terrible accident,
will his students be able to remember the lessons he taught them? Or will
their lives go back to the way they were before-before fifth grade and before
Mr. Terupt?

Find out what happens in sixth and seventh grades in Mr. Terupt Falls Again and Saving Mr. Terupt. And don't miss
the conclusion to the series, Goodbye, Mr. Terupt, coming soon!

"The characters are authentic and the short chapters are skillfully arranged to keep readers
moving headlong toward the satisfying conclusion."--School Library
