Overview
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 . . .

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.
