Review: Because of Mr. Terupt was a fairly good book that showed how much teachers can change the lives of their students and that sometimes you get a second chance. The characters are believable but due to the similarities in some of their personalities it can be hard to remember who is who. Also, since this book was written from the POV of seven fifth-graders, the writing seemed a bit on the juvenile side. Overall, the story and meaning of this book is better than the quality.
