    1. Katy Jane

      1. This is hands down one of my favorite books of all time. 2. It made me cry, it made me think, it made me hopeful, it challenged me, it made me want to be a better educator. 3. My husband is a math teacher and when I told him about the dollar words, he immediately integrated that into his lessons for the year. 4. I am a teen librarian and it made me want to be better and to love those kids harder than I already do. 5. I fell in love with every single character.6. I felt emotions so much harder [...]

      You always remember the teachers you’ve had in school, especially those who have helped you in some way – those who were there for you, managed to broaden your worldview and taught you as much about fields of study as life itself.Mr. Terupt is that teacher. Everyone has something going on, making them think and behave in a particular way. Indeed, Peter, Jessica, Luke, Alexia, Jeffrey, Danielle and Anna have their own stuff to deal with and they’re used to dealing with it on their own.So th [...]

      Last night, my 11-year-old daughter ran into my room sobbing and clutching this book. "Mom, this was just so sad. It was tragic. And there are consequences to our actions. You know? Like, what you do affects others. And this teacher he was amazing, mom. AMAZING. But these students ohmygod, there was the fat girl, but she was so nice and this really stupid popular girl who wore a lot of lip gloss, and a new girl, and a smart boy, BUT I can't stop crying. You have to read this book, mom." I cou [...]

      I picked this book up due to a review from a friend (thanks Melissa!). I thought my daughter, who is going into the 5th Grade might enjoy it. I even thought maybe I'd read it with her and we could talk about it. Two days later, we left on vacation. Towards the end of our trip, I ran out of reading material and since my daughter hadn't started the book yet, I went ahead and picked it up. I plowed through most of it in a few hours, then as we began our 11 hour car ride home, I began rereading it a [...]

      This book will be perfect to hand kids headed into 5th grade. The characters are strong, the structure of the book interesting with its multiple viewpoints, and the story interesting - and I had passed this up from the reviews. It didn't sound so strong - but each chapter is told by a dr=ifferent student in the class, describing events frmo a slightly different perspective and clarifying the mudyy bits by this change in POV. The teacher is one who offers challenges rather then a standard curricu [...]

      I indeed do much enjoy Rob Buyea's Because of Mr. Terupt, but I also in no way will ever love it. For while I usually appreciate different viewpoints and voices being presented and depicted in a narrative, there is for me simply "too much of a good thing" presented within this novel, as I really do find both the constant shifting of focus and the often extremely short length of many of the chapters and the sheer number of different viewpoints (more than seven distinct voices) more than a bit dis [...]

      It's possible this review will be incredibly biased. As someone who has just finished her second year of teaching with a group of third graders who may have changed her life, am I over-identifying with every single aspect of this story? Possibly.That said, this book made me cry. The beginning seemed pretty uneventful - Mr. Terupt is a "rookie" teacher who takes on a class of fifth graders. I smiled at all of the patented "teacher moves" that permeate this character (this book was SO OBVIOUSLY wr [...]

    8. Ms. Yingling

      A class of diverse students are glad that they have a new teacher; he's funnier, more aware, and more creative than the "mean old farts" that have been teaching long enough to be wise to the kids' tricks. Classroom dramas unfold; the mean girl, Alexis, tries to start a "girl war"; students have family problems; the class reads Summer of the Swans (which Mr. Terupt says is not an exciting book, but a good one that will make them think) and works with a Collaborative Classroom on several projects. [...]

    9. Amanda

      A book about a teacher that changes the lives of his students. I loved it! Absolutely great read and I can't wait to share it with my students next school year.

    10. Mariah

      I have a lot of mixed feelings about this book. There are a lot of characters and it is hard to keep them apart. Also, the book is super unrealistic, but it is for middle school aged children. I believe if I was reading this as my middle school self I would have enjoyed the book a lot more.

    11. Angelica Rodriguez

      Have you ever wanted a teacher that is cool and cares about his/her students more then a teacher normally would? Have you ever had a teacher that is cool and chill? This book is realistic fiction. ***THERE MIGHT BE SPOILERS JUST SO YOU KNOW*** I really really liked this book, it's one of my favorite books and it's an amazing book. I thought it was an amazing book that there should be a movie about it. I liked this book because in general it just grabbed my attention, when the kids said that thei [...]

      Outstanding and effectiveWow! Quite an undertaking, and very successfully done.The author presents a sequential story, told from the separate viewpoints of seven different fifth-graders, each with a unique voice.I was a little worried that this would be a syrupy, thinly-veiled "pro-education" pep-talk. Happily, it wasn't at all--it's a well-written story that not only kept my interest (easily), but really made me care about the characters. And, in an unobtrusive way, taught me a little something [...]

    13. Camille

      i remember watching 90210 and especially dawson's creek and ended up thinking: these kids are acting way older than high schoolers! well, that's my big problem with this book. these kids are expressing themselves with way more maturity than your average 5th grader. well, i'll get back to the problems, but let me set the stage: this is a story told over the length of the school year about a class of seven 5th graders and their relationship with their teacher. the story is told from each student's [...]

    14. Amy

      I expected to really love this book and instead it fell completely flat. The book tells the story of Mr. Terupt, a first year teacher tackling the wiles of fifth grade. The story is told from the point of view of 7 students that he has a profound impact on during the course of the year. But telling a story like this can be very tricky because it is easy to fall into the "stereotype" trapd this book fell in head first. All of the characters, including the teacher, were stereotypes of different ty [...]

    15. Mrs. Trekas

      **This is not a formal review yet. I just finished the book and I wanted to get some thoughts down. I really liked this book. It made me cry. Mostly it made me think. I know this book is made for a younger reader (think 5-6th grade) but I think most kids would like this book. I like how it's divided so you see the same story from a few different perspectives. I LOVE the idea of dollar words. So brilliant! As nerdy as this sounds, as a teacher you hope you can inspire your students. To challenge [...]

      HAD I NOT BEEN SITTING IN A CAR DEALERSHIP WAITING ON AN OIL CHANGE, I WOULD HAVE SOBBED MY WAY THROUGH THE LAST THIRD OF THIS BOOK. Read it.Ok, so let me expound.This book. I could see where it was going. BUT I LOVED IT ANYWAY. I could see it because I'm a reader and have read a lot of books. I could see it because it was even hinted at on the book jacket. But most of all, I could see it because I'm a teacher. This book got to me, y'all. I've read other reviews, and seen commentary that says th [...]

    17. Rebecca

      Wow. This book was absolutely amazing. I struggled to ever put it down, and had my parents yelling at me because I needed to go to bed. This was one of the most engaging books I have ever read. If anybody is looking for a book to relate to I would totally read this. Although this book is very sad and I had tears dripping down my cheeks, its a book I would recommend to anybody. This is and will always be one of my favorite books!

      The start of fifth grade brings new teacher Mr Terupt and the students whose life he enriches by opening their world. He helps his students become better versions of themselvesCAUSE OF MR TERUPT is a delightful story that will appeal to most middle grade readers. Teacher Rob Buyea wrote the story in multiple points of view of different students, the new girl, the bully, the shy girl, the smart kid, the angry kid, the class clown and the girl who’s mom has a bad reputation. Readers will see the [...]

In my opinion this book is great and I would read it again next time I don’t nothing to do. ). It was the last day of school without Mr. Terupt and the students were so quiet and they didn’t expect someone at the end. ****SPOILER ALERT****. This book takes place on Connecticut at a [...]

      I picked up Because of Mr. Terupt at my daughter's elementary school library when a teacher recommended it to me. It is Rob Buyea's first novel, and after reading it, I am anxiously looking forward to reading more from him. Because of Mr. Terupt has won all kinds of awards, including State Book Award nominations in 14 states and being a Cybiles finalist.Because of Mr. Terupt is the story of a fifth grade teacher and his students. The story is narrated in alternating chapters by seven different s [...]

    22. Tory Shepeluk

      This is a story about a new teacher in a Connecticut school that all the kids in his classroom adore. He is the best Teacher they've ever had, and He helps many of the students with their serious problems. They don't know what they have until Mr. Turupt is in serious danger. I absolutely loved this book. I laughed and scoffed and cried. I would definitely recommend this book to any fifth grader out there, solely because they can relate the most. I am in sixth grade, and I enjoyed it more than ev [...]

    23. Laura

      Really loved this story told in multiple voices. Beloved teacher Mr. Terupt has an uncanny way of influencing his students' lives for the better. Students judgments and opinions of each other comes through loud and clear as each student narrates his or her version of events. Their personal secrets, flaws, and strengths are slowly revealed. It takes a tragedy to unify the class bring about a satisfying resolution. Would make a great read aloud.

    24. Ruth

      Loved this book. I was challenged by 5th graders to read this. After I heard how much they liked it and how it made them cry, I wanted to know why it made them cry so I read it. Very good book, in fact so good I had to read the second one. I recommend this one.

    25. Sam

      This is a fantastic book! If you are looking for a great read, please pick this up. It is pretty realistic, and explains the amazing effects that one teacher can have on many different students, and their parents. It also shows that there are always good things that come from bad ones.

    26. AngelaS_E2

      I read this book a long time ago but I decided to read it again. After reading it again it gave me another thinking about this book. This book is about a life of a fifth-grade class at Snow Hill School and how the new teacher Mr.Terupt touched their heart. This story is being told by 7 students. This book is cool because you can see different people's perspective about their life as a fifth grader. While reading this book it kind of brought me back to when I was in fifth grade.

    27. Katrina

      I read this book in 6th grade, my teacher Ms. Wright read this book to my class for reading time. I love this book. This book is about a class of children with an amazing teacher, about their memories together. I truly love this book because we I had so much amazing memories reading this book. When my class, we finished this book, my teacher decided to 'Skype' the author of the book. It' was so cool! We skyped with the author, Rob Buyea for an hour or two I think. Before Christmas break, my teac [...]
