Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“With a knack for delineating likeable teachers, Clements introduces us to Mr. Larson, a burned-out fifth grade teacher, and to his nemesis, Cara Landry. A budding journalist, Cara publishes a paper exposing his frailties. Definitely funny and surprisingly wise. A 1999 Silver Award Winner.”  Parents’ Choice
“A terrific read about free speech, the power of the pen, and the need to temper truth with mercy.”  Library Journal
“Actor Andrew McCarthy uses inflection and tone with subtle voice changes to make the fifth grade girls and boys and the stodgy principal vital and believable characters. This is an enjoyable story that also provides a great deal of information on some important and current issues. School Library Journal
“Sure to stimulate classroom discussion, the novel offers students and teachers well-rounded perspectives and lessons on reconciling appearances with the real story—in the media as well as in private lives.”  Booklist
