Mr. Terupt faces his first class at Snow Hill School. His fifth grade class is a lot like yours. A smart new California girl whose family has just split up, a boy who's determined to become brilliant scientist, a prankster, an outcast, a girl -- bully -- who's just a little bit better than everyone else, a troublemaker, a boy who hates school ... and there's more.

Mr. Terupt's students write accounts of events that take place in their class. From them, we learn about the energetic, empathetic Mr. Terupt's innate ability to reach all of his kids. His classroom is a fun place, and Mr. Terupt has a keen eye for understanding the most important lessons that need to be learned. He even keeps things under control ... until that one snowy winter day. The day that was supposed to be a fun day. The day when one event snowballs into an accident and changes everything—and everyone. And then, everything changes ... because of Mr. Terupt.
