You are probably wondering why didn’t capitalize the title of this post. Well, that is because on the cover of the book, “because of mr. terupt,” it is not capitalized.
I recently read this book. It is amazing! (Spoiler alert!!!!) This book is about a group of kids who are entering the cruel world of 5th grade. They have a new “newbie” teacher called Mr. Terupt. Although right now you are probably thinking, “Oh, it’s just another book about the drama of 5th grade and blah blah blah.” If it was like that it would definitely be a pretty boring book. But actually, these 7 main characters do not get along very well. Jessica, the new girl, smart, and perceptive. 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. Anna, shy, and whose home situation makes her an outcast. Jeffery, who absolutely positively hates school.
The only person who seems to know how to deal with them all at once is Mr. Terupt. But then, on a snowy winter day, an accident happens that leaves the students in misery. Each student had come to like Mr. Terupt, he made everything fun. He was a very special teacher. But when a snowball is thrown, it leaves their special teacher in a coma. But despite of this, he somehow helps each and every one of them with family, and school problems.
In my opinion this book gets very intense. At some parts, you just want to cry. Other parts, you want to smile like you’ve never smiled before. This book is a page turner, it’s text will suck you in and make you never want to stop reading. I strongly recommend this book to anyone looking for a short fiction story.
