Because of Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea really touched me and made me think about teachers and the impact they have on their students. Every teacher is a little bit different and they bring out a variety of characteristics in their students. The story is told from multiple perspectives, which adds to the depth of the story and helps to generate a good connection with the kids in the class. When I had the chance to see each situation from a different point of view it made me realize that so often we misjudge something because we think we know what is going on, but are missing important pieces of the puzzle. The story flowed nicely and the pacing was perfect. I liked their teacher Mr. Terupt, and I know it would be a blast to be in his class. I would certainly recommend this book to kids in fourth through eighth grade. Even better- a sequel is coming out soon. I can’t wait! This is a book that should not be missed!
Has anyone else read Because of Mr. Terupt? Or read another book by Rob Buyea?
