Ms. Bixby's Last Day by John David Anderson
Everyone knows there are different kinds of teachers. The good ones. The not so good ones. The boring ones, the mean ones, the ones who try too hard. The ones you'll never remember, the ones you want to forget. But Mr. Bixby is none of these. She's the sort of teacher who makes you feel like the indignity of school is worthwhile. Who makes the idea of growing up less terrifying. Who you never want to disappoint. What Ms. Bixby is, is one of a kind.
Topher, Brand, and Steve know this better than anyone. And so when Ms. Bixby unexpectedly announces that she is very sick and won't be able to finish the school year, they come up with a plan. Through the three different stories they tell, we begin to understand just what MS. Bixby means to Topher, Brand, and Steve--and what they are willing to go to such great lengths to tell her.
