Masterfully written. This book is a must read for teachers who want to make an impact in the lives of young people. It is packed with “how to” information for creating an excellent classroom culture, but is presented in the form of a novel. The book follows four teachers in a middle school who learn first-hand that they are not connecting with their students as a result of their teaching styles. Through a process of outside advice and painstaking introspection they learn how to change their approach to achieve a better outcome. The book is absolutely riveting as the lives of both teachers and students change and grow because these teachers cared enough to try something new. Teachers will come away from this lively narrative empowered with new skills and energized to become the kind of teacher they always wanted to be.
