A fifth grader's scathing editorial criticizing her burned-out teacher spurs him to take his duties seriously. A terrific read about free speech, the power of the pen, and the need to temper truth with mercy.
This book is very inspiring!
The way the main character handles the issues that present themselves really draws you into the story. Andrew Clements expresses the emotions very well. I loved this book! Read it!
