Reseña del editor
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.

The characters come from a wide variety of backgrounds, which I think is great. But I found some of situations to be a little heavy for what I want my nine-year-old reading just yet. Two of the characters have parents that have had divorces as a result of affairs (other girlfriends). One child was born when her mom was still in high school (maybe 16 or 17 years old, I don't quite recall). Though these situations are real - along with the sadness, grief, shame, and guilt that accompany them - I don't think I'm ready for that to take up space in my daughter's leisure reading time yet.
I realize that this is probably a more accurate reflection of society than I would hope, but those are a couple of things I would have wanted to know *before* my child read this book, so that I could have the chance to either 1) hold off for a while on introducing this book or 2) read it as a read-aloud so we could discuss these topics right then. As it happened, I was so intruiged by the book, I ended up reading it before I passed it on to her -- so for me, the problem was avoided.
I'm definitely sticking the book on the shelf for a year or two though, and plan to bring it out later. It was an excellent read with many good examples of good and bad behavior, and characters changing (an excellent life skill to learn!). I just think the nine side of the 9-12 age range was a little low, even if reading ability was considerably higher.

"I think it was a case of Mr. Terupt being a special teacher."
Seven normal children are awed when the dazzling Mr. Terupt becomes a teacher. These seven children, similar to you and me, all have different personalities, but all have one thing in common: a bond with Mr. Terupt. Before the school year started, they thought that school was going to be the same old, boring building, but they were proven wrong by Mr. Terupt. This heart-warming tale as Mr. Terupt is knocked out cold shows what being there for someone in their time of need really means.
Mr. Terupt doesn’t teach normal; he teaches differently. He even makes math fun! He shows what it really means to learn. But then, all it takes is one mistake to go from good to bad. When one big mistake knocks Mr. Terupt down, he isn't able to get back up, which shocks the group. They all feel bad, and don't know what to do. Then they realize what it means to support each other.
I could really connect with this book as I was a mixture of the seven characters: Peter, the clown, Jessica, the new girl, Luke, the brain, Alexia, the queen bee, Jeffrey, the slacker, Danielle, the pushover, and Anna, the shy one. I recommend this book to anyone in middle school or at the end of elementary, and to anyone who has felt what the true meaning of friendship really is.
Although there is much drama, sadness, and mistakes all throughout the book, there is happiness scattered all around, by connecting with each other. Buyea, a former teacher, really knows children, and proves it with this hit book.
BECAUSE OF MR TERUPT is a delightful story that will appeal to most middle grade readers. Teacher Rob Buyea wrote the story in multiple points of view of different students, the new girl, the bully, the shy girl, the smart kid, the angry kid, the class clown and the girl who’s mom has a bad reputation. Readers will see themselves in one or more characters, each has a backstory that enhances readers’ understanding of the person.
BECAUSE OF MR TERUPT is a great book for middle grade readers and will appeal to boys and girls.
My granddaughter came home from her first day in fourth grade with the comment, "I have a "Luke" sitting nest to me." We talked again about how you don't know what others' lives are like, and that the best policy is just to be nice to everyone.
