Saving Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea (2015) – Middle Grade Fiction
This is the third book in the Mr. Terupt series. As in the previous two, each chapter is told from the first person perspective of a different classmate. These students have been in the same class in school for the last two years, with Mr. Terupt, and this year, they are starting seventh grade. It is a major issue that they will no longer be in class with Mr. Terupt. They go to visit with Mr. Terupt after school. Meanwhile, their friendships have started taking some turns. Will they make up and become friends again? Meanwhile, Danielle has not been feeling well. She feels exhausted. It all comes to a head on Christmas Eve when she can’t stop visiting the bathroom.
Personally, I just could not get into this book as much as the first one. I raved about how good the first one (Because of Mr. Terept) was. This story felt kind of of blah, but it could have just been me!
