Saving Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea is the third book in a series I really love. This book shared another school year full of experiences of Buyea’s characters/Mr. Terupt’s students.
Mr. Terupt’s fifth grade students: Peter, Anna, Jeffrey, Alexia, Danielle, Luke and Jessica, make posters, raise money, and try to save their favorite teacher’s job as their town suffers unexpected budget cuts. Which teachers should keep their jobs? Which teachers should go? Is there a way to do it fairly?
I enjoy how the author breaks apart the story so that each character has their own opportunity to speak and share how they feel about a specific setting, event, or what’s going on at home. This is definitely a book I would recommend to people who like determination, adventure, and friendship changes.
