Seventh grade was going to be awesome. The only thing missing was Mr. Terupt. The kids from Mr. Terupt's fifth- and sixth-grade classes are entering their first year of junior high school. There's a lot to be excited about, but there are new challenges, too. Peter and Jeffrey face tough competition on their wrestling team. Alexia has a disastrous first day of school, and that's only the beginning. Anna is desperate for Charlie to propose to her mother--what is he waiting for?! Danielle isn't feeling so well, but she's trying to tough it out, like Grandma. Trouble with a bully makes Luke dread going to school for the first time ever. And Jessica is waiting anxiously for an acceptance to a theater retreat in New York City. Everyone is missing Mr. Terupt." --publisher.

i think this book series is AMAZING. i recommend it for grades 5-7. My teacher read the whole series to my class, and when we finished book 3, everybody was begging for more.

This book is awesome! The book depicts grade sevens really well and the characters have very different traits. I just don't like the ending because
the way Mr. Terupt was saved of his job was a bit too fast so that's why I didn't give it a five star. But I do recommend reading this book.

In this third book about a beloved teacher (following Because of Mr. Terupt [Random House, 2010] and Mr.Terupt Falls Again [Random House, 2012/VOYA December 2012]), Terupt's faithful "gang" of students from sixth grade faces the challenges of junior high. In separate, short chapters, Peter, Jeffrey, Jessica, Alexia, Danielle, Anna, and Luke tell how their friendships are tested in seventh grade when things go wrong at a campaign party for Alexia and Luke, who both decide to run for president of the student government. It takes a school budget crisis to bring the friends together in an all-out campaign to save Mr. Terupt's job The individual personalities and abilities of Buyea's characters emerge through their narratives as they tell about their interests and feelings, including moves from friendships to budding romantic relationships. Danielle's narrative includes a scientific explanation of diabetes type one and her courageous attitude in learning how to manage her health. This is an engaging read with broad appeal.
