Mr. Terupt and his students are back… Although he is out of the hospital, Mr. Terupt has not fully recovered from his injuries and coma, but that is actually not what the title refers to at all.

This time around, Mr. Terupt falls… in love. His students are very excited for him and fully support him just like he supports them at all times. Peter, Jessica, Luke, Alexia, Jeffrey, Danielle and Anna are once again dealing with their own personal problems and making mistakes.

To some extent, these char

After reading Because of Mr. Terupt, my students convinced me to read the sequel. BEWARE! The material is not appropriate for read alouds in the classroom. Mr. Buyea continues this book with the sixth grade year of the same students from last year. While funny in parts, the subject matter is way too mature for my fourth graders. Honestly, I wouldn't recommend this one to any fourth grader and was disappointed. The book may be more appropriate for middle school readers, especially girls.

The fifth graders who were in Mr. Terupt's class the year that he started his awesome teaching career but also became gravely injured are glad to have him again for 6th grade. In chapters from different students' perspectives, we see how the students lives and the classroom are different. Lexie is trying to grow up too fast and is hanging out with high schoolers who are getting her in trouble. Peter is trying to deal with his guilt. Luke is staying on top of being the best student in the class. ...more

It was unbelievable that Mr. Terupt was able to help seven students so much throughout many hardships. The accident that was so skillfully planned, in the 1st book, wasn't even an accident at all. Each an every one of those seven students were guided and helped as Mr. Terupt was lying lifeless in his bed.

I was a little nervous reading the title of, "Mr. Terupt Falls Again." Obviously, I was thinking of yet another great deal of sorrow for all the kids. But.. throughout the book, I realized the

I enjoyed reading this sequel. I'll be honest, I geeked out with the reader's workshop reference but that's just the teacher in me.

just a disclaimer that i didn't know that this book is recommended to fourth graders and i'm eighteen so ahaha.

anyways i didn't enjoy this as much which is why this is a two star. i had pretty level expectations for this but honestly i barely saw a plot. the problem was really the connection between each point of view for each student.

Do you like adventurous stories? This book is realistic fiction because, things in this book can happen in real life. My opinion of the book is, it is really good I would read it again if I could. I really liked how every time something bad would happen they would find Mr. Terupt just to make sure he was okay because they know the risks that could happen could ruin Mr. Terupts life. ***Spoiler Alert***
The setting is mainly in the school. The students got Mr. Terupt to teach them again because th

While I liked this sequel, it didn't hold the same charm for me as Because of Mr. Terupt. It was nice to have the loose ends tied up and to continue to follow the students from the previous book, but there was a little more content about maturation than I was comfortable with for an audience I assume is targeted at upper elementary students--it seemed more appropriate for junior high. Still, I always enjoy reading about a great teacher, and Mr. Terupt falls into that category. I particularly app ...more

Wow, I never thought a book could have such a huge influence on me. Mr. Terrupt falls again was AMAZING!! At first I didn't think I was going to like it as much as Because of Mr. Terrupt but once I got going it turned out to be wonderful. Everyone needs to read this book. I cant even explain in words how terrific this book really was. Don't miss out on this inspiring book!!!

I didn't enjoy this book as much as "Because of Mr. Terupt." While the first book revolved around Mr. Terupt's accident, there were a bunch of unrelated events happening here. Lexie starts hanging out with teenagers who encourage her to wear makeup and smoke. Jeffrey finds an abandoned baby on the side of the road (!!! This could be a major plot point in many books, but not here). Danielle's grandparents are worried and mad because Native Americans are trying to "steal" their land. And so on.

In MR TERUPT FALLS AGAIN the teacher moves to sixth grade along with his class. The same seven kids from BECAUSE OF MR TERUPT have grown under his guidance and have become friends and supporters of each other.

I didn’t like part two of this three part series as much as the first because situations with the kids felt less genuine and more forced. Everything magically falls into place, which may be satisfactory for younger middle grade readers.

MR TERUPT FALLS AGAIN will appeal to readers of the fir

Jeffery is loving. His brother died, and afterwards his family started to drift apart. When he found an abandoned baby he took him home, and the child was eventually adopted. This brought his family closer than ever.

After reading this book it might make you appreciate your teachers more by the side that you understand why they do what they do.If your like me and likes realistic fiction I recommend this book to you. It's funny book but, there is also some sad moments. You get points of view from each student.I noticed there was a lot of things that the students did that I do.

The students changed a lot through out the story. They became friends after they met Mr.Terupt. The title "Mr.Terupt Falls Again" rel

C'mon, C'mon..... So close!!!!!!

It's here! It was SOOOOOOOO awesome! I love Mr Terupt Falls Again!

If you go on Rob Buyea's website, you'll see the picture of him and his daughter where it says "...she has read my third book..." Since Mr Terupt Falls Again is Rob Buyea's second book, than there might be a Mr Terupt trilogy! I hope there is! That would be really cool!

For anyone who lives in Manchester, CT:
Rob Buyea is coming to the Nutmeg@Night this year! :D

Personal Opinion:
This book was full of twists everywhere. It was well written. The only part that confused me at first was the new way Jessica’s part was written. Other than that it was the same format as before. I also enjoy the way you get to see the perspective from everyone's view and not just one character’s perspective or the narrator's perspective.

I enjoyed it but I was thrown off by the Farmer vs Native American land rights battle that was never fully developed. It made me wonder why Buyea put that in the novel -- did he originally plan to make it a larger part of the plot? Whether Buyea intended to or not, Falls Again might leave kids [that are not familiar with the sad history of the downfall/genocide of Native Americans] with the impression that Native Americans are strange, greedy people who plan to steal hard working, WHITE farmers' ...more

Good book read aloud wise but if you’re teaching anything below 8th grade, I’d be careful and/or send permission slips home first. There was some content that I myself deemed inappropriate for my 5th graders. While I think some could handle parts, most were not mature enough whatsoever. My students were very annoyed when I skipped parts and it did require very quick thinking on my part with some improv but overall, they really enjoyed the book and so did I. It was a great sequel.

DNF. We read the first book because it was assigned for summer reading and I found i totally unimpressive. I didn't see why Mr. T was such an influence on these kids when he was barely part of their lives. Any teacher worth anything could have connected with these kids as minimally as he did. The 2nd book I began to read because my 5th grader requested to and I can't get past the Lexie chapters with cigarettes and sexual innuendo. I told him we could do better. This book is really not my cup of ...more

The second book never seems as good as the first, except for maybe this one! I loved the changes that happened to the same old characters, that seemed to turn them into completely new people!
I gave this book 4 stars because I won't forget what happened in it, but will personally still like the first book the better.
