Principal Heard took a chance hiring the young, inexperienced Miss Loupe to teach the 6th grade on a North Carolina Air Force Base. Will her moments of unconventional teaching work to motivate underperforming Bo, his resentful cousin Gari, and the rest of the class? Or will Miss Loupe crash and burn? This is a book about over a dozen characters, improvisational theater, the military, ties of family, aircraft, school bureaucracy, war, pain, behavior issues, mobile lifestyles, finding cracks, letting the light in, and saying YES.
This book is funny, engaging, and inspiring. It is perfect for middle-school readers, especially those interested in learning about military families and improvisation.
