Because of Mr. Terupt
by Rob Buyea is a must read book about a brand new teacher coming to a school. At first, everyone thought he was just like any old annoying teacher, but in a day, everyone recognized him as the nicest teacher ever who really connected with his students. He came up with unique games or ideas that the kids always loved. He even gave kids rewards, he said that each time his class behaved good, he would put a paper clip hanging on the ceiling. He would keep on linking those paper clips until the chain hit the floor, after that the kids would earn a free day, but that was the one plan that backfired. The kids decided to go outside in the snow and just do whatever they wanted, but Peter (a kid in the class) took it way to far and chucked a snowball that hit Mr. Terupt's head. Mr. Terupt was in a coma. Suddenly, the class barely talked, and were always in sad moods. Will Mr. Terupt wake up from his coma? Will the classmates talk again? Read this thriller to find out.
My favorite part is on page 8 when Mr. Terupt introduces dollar words. This is my favorite part because I think it is a unique idea and I knew is was a start to his wacky ideas.
The genre of this book is realistic fiction.
I think that every single kid ages 8-13 should read this book because it explains why you shouldn't bully and treat everyone fairly. Since it tells the book from different perspectives, you know how the bully thinks, and how the person being bullied thinks. Also, everyone loves this because everyone can't stop putting this book down since they want to know if Mr. Terupt escapes his coma.
Why I chose this book:
I chose to read this book because my classmates said it was really good. I also read this book because it was a book part of a book quiz I am in.
