Title: Mrs. Bixby's Last Day, by John David Anderson
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Gut Reaction: I had a hard time in the beginning of the book, not quite understanding that every chapter changes to another character's perspective. The first forty pages were not that interesting or eye-catching for me, but the rest of the book was much better.
Summary: There are different types of teachers in everyone's lives.The good ones, the not-so-good ones, the boring ones, the mean ones, the ones that try too hard, and the strict ones, say three boys named Christopher, Brand, and Steven.There are some that you will never forget, though, and Mrs. Bixby is one of those teachers.To them, Mrs. Bixby is one of a kind.
When Mrs. Bixby suddenly announces that she won't be able to finish the school year, the three boys come up with a risky plan to give Mrs. Bixby the last day she deserves! Told through the boys' perspectives, it gives us three different views of how much Mrs. Bixby means to them.
What plan did the boys come up with? Will they fail or succeed? This book is humorous, charming, bittersweet, and sad, a great balance. If there was a sequel I would definitely read it!
