The kids and teacher of Because of Mr. Terupt are back in this warm-hearted sequel.

Fifth-grade was full of unforgettable events for Mr. Terupt and his class at Snow Hill School. Seven students were particularly affected by Mr. Terupt. Now those seven students are back, and they've been granted the rare opportunity to send one more year with their beloved teacher before they graduate from elementary school. Peter's parents expect him to attend private school after sixth-grade, but Peter has plans to stay right where he is. Eager to grow up, Alexia gets in over her head with some older kids. Danielle suspects that her family is keeping a secret from her, and she's determined to find out what it is. Jeffrey makes a life-changing discovery. Curious about her teacher's past, Jessica uncovers startling details about Mr. Terupt. Anna finally decides she's ready for the truth about her absent dad. And Luke's keen observations lead to questions with unexpected answers.

It's a roller coaster of a year as Mr. Terupt helps his students be the best they can be—and enlists their help to pull off an extra-special project. But will there be a happy ending for all?

    This book is perfect for you if you enjoyed "flying solo" by Ralph fletcher or if you just enjoy classroom stories. The book captures what 5th or any grade can be like if you have the right teacher. The book has unlikely friendships, worrying, happiness, and learning how to be a good student and a good person. I read this book in my 5th grade year and have read the entire series numerous times science then....and it has only been a year! I highly recommend this book also check out the 3 other books in the series!

      As the sequel to Because of Mr. Terupt, Rob Buyea beautifully depicts growing up. Definitely for a mature and older audience.

        This is an amazing book that really shows what a great teacher can do to you, even when he is in a coma. I love this book so much, it is emotionally moving, and makes me cry every time I read it.

                  So I didn't like it as much as the first book because the first book did not focus as much on the bad things and the second book mentioned some pretty interesting things and then at the end It was funny because I was expecting him to get hurt again , but instead he fell but he fell in love.
