I actually thought this book was good because I like school. I like the way Avi explained it in the story, and he really put feelings into it. I don't think the book ever got boring. My favorite part was reading about Tom, one of the students who built a radio all by himself! All the kids were excited because the radio let them listen to news all over the world. It was my favorite part because I thought it would be cool to build a radio. Tom reminded me of myself because he and I act a lot alike, and we want the same things, like to know how to drive. The book made me feel like following my dreams.
I would recommend this book to anybody who likes school because it is about a girl that keeps a school open and everything she has to do to become a teacher. I liked all the characters. I liked the way Avi explained the story because it never got boring ever, ever, ever.
