Ask a Bookseller: Because of Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea (ages 8-12)

We asked booksellers from all around the world to tell us

their favorite children's book. Suzanna Hermans from

Oblong Books & Music, located in Rhinebeck and

Millerton, NY, shares her pick.

Because of Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea

Told in seven first-person perspectives, the kids in Mr. Terupt's 
5th-grade class chronicle the first year with their new teacher. 
When tragedy strikes, the kids lives are changed forever. 
They each must overcome a personal challenge, and the tragedy 
that befalls their class helps them do so. In the middle of it all is the 
beloved Mr. Terupt, a young first-year teacher whose energy and 
spirit serve to inspire his class immensely. A one-sitting read,
Rob Buyea's debut is the first of many excellent books to come.
