The Secret Life of Ms. Finkleman

What would you do if you found out a secret about your Middle School music teacher? Follow Bethesda, the perfect student, and Tenny, the kid that never pays attention, as they make a secret promise that will change the lives of their friends and their music teacher forever. This book is fun to read and has some very real moments as the students take risks as they are learning to grow up. Each character has a quirk that makes them charming, and the plot is well paced. This book was a delight to read.

  1. I was doing after school and we had been working on a power point presentation, so after we had finished up and the kids were just hanging out and we went over these books and they are begging for this book, they thought it sounded so interesting. (5th graders) They promised they would all read it.
