The first-person narratives didn't sound like authentic kids at the beginning, but that either improved or the story got so good that I didn't notice anymore. Very moving, with lots to talk about with kids who read it.

I don't want to say anything negative, b/c I did very much enjoy reading this book, but I couldn't shake the ick-factor of a teacher writing a novel about a teacher who swoops in and saves everyone.
