Features seven narrators, each with a unique story, and each with a different perspective on what makes their teacher so special.It’s the start of fifth grade for seven kids at Snow Hill School. 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.
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.

Because of Mr Terupt is a great book in my opinion. This book is about 7 specific students who are in a teacher named Mr Terupt that they love as a teacher. Mr Terupt is not like all teachers, he is kind and loves all his students. He does things differently but in a good way. I love the way how every chapter tells you who point of view is it. Beacause of Mr Terupt book is very interesting and good, I would definitely read this again and buy the next ones, its great!

Because of Mr Terupt follows the lives of 7 people and 1 teacher. The book is about 7 students who hate each other until Mr Terupt comes along. Mr Terupt is not like most teachers, he makes everything from math to science different ...... and fun and ... more interesting! He helps the class learn to trust each other and to be there for each other, because they'll need it. One day it happens, the day everything changed, their beloved teacher, Mr Terupt falls into a coma. Everyone comes together to weep for him and to pray for him, the accident also opened the eyes of the the students and their family, Because Of Mr Terupt. I hope you will read this book because this book is beautifully written and you will love it, trust me!

I love this book so much I actually bought the whole series, I love how it switches from the students point off view because I'm sure most of us on this website are still students and relate a bit to them, I love Mr Terupt's personality he is a teacher I would definitely want, when Mr Terupt woke up from his coma I kinda thought he would forget his memory...

Because of Mr. Turupt by Buyea, Rob tells the story of these 8 people in the class of a bad tragedy. Mr. Terupt is a new teacher who teaches fifth grade. He helps these kids named Jessica, Alexia, Peter, Luke, Danielle, Anna, and Jeffery. Later in the story Mr. Turupt gets hit by a snowball thrown by Peter. But because of getting hit by the snowball he is in a coma. But during that time Anna has some trouble with Danielle’s family when Anna and Dannielle want to be friends. This book is amazing if you like sad books. So will Mr. Turupt come out of his Coma?!

Awesome book!!!!!! 7 students, 7 point of views, one teacher. Awesome!!!!

This is such a great book. I first read it as an assigned book from my teacher but then I read it like 10 more times on my own!

I once read this book with my class and it was so good it has all mixed emotions sad, happy, embarrassed, and much more. It is one of the best books that I have read. The book shows each of the student's points of view. The book is about a teacher ( Mr.Terupt) who gets in a comma and his students do some amazing things some bad some weird some good and much more. Then they end up haveing the best school year ever!!!

Nice review, congrats on the editor's pick of featured review. :D

This book was amazing it has a mix of sad sorrow and happiness, It's very realistic and it is a page-turner. Jeffrey, Danielle, Lexie, Jessica, Luke, and Peter are pretty much the reason this book is great, oh yeah let's not forget about Mr. Terupt. Peter is your average troublemaker, Lexie is a sassy fashionista, Luke is the brainiac, Danielle is a big believer in God, and Jessica is a new girl from Florida. They all go to snow hill school and go through traumatic times and great times no matter what happens Robert Buyea always writes it beautifully and with great detail as well. This book is really good but I won't be the judge of that, you will.
