The Secret Life of Ms. Finkleman is a fun, engaging middle grade read.

When 7th grader Bethseda Fielding is giving a class assignment to solve a mystery, she takes it upon herself to find out who their shy, mousy voiced music teacher, Ms Finkleman really is. When her ambitions of solving the mystery get ahead of her, Bethseda will not only have gained new friends, helped some of her fellow students discover their talents and turn the school upside down with her latest discovery, but she'll learn an important lesson from Ms. Finkleman herself.

Ben's writing really paints a vivid picture of middle school, and it's not hard to see why middle graders would enjoy this read. Mix that with some wonderful relatable characters, and add an awesome plot that has a mystery and a little of rock rock and roll, and the end result is a book I would highly recommend 5th-7th graders pick up and read.
