    • I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review Fantastic I loved the characters and the heart of this story I was inspired by this story of the transformation that can happen when students have teachers and other adults who believe in them Mr Kermit, the teacher, changes the most over the story The core of his character is to be a voice and an advocate for students and that makes a difference for this group of kids especially.

    • Mr Kermit AKA Ribbet has been burned out from teaching, ever since the cheating scandal incident some 30 years ago What made the whole episode worse is that it was one of his students who was accused of cheating, and Mr Kermit knew nothing about it, yet still ended up being blamed for the whole thing Ever since that day, Mr Kermit has lost his spark for teaching Now he just seems to go through his day doing crossword puzzles, drinking monster amounts of coffee and biding his time until h Mr Kerm [...]


    • E ARC from Edelweiss PlusMr Kermit is entering his 30th year of teaching, and he s already put in for early retirement He started his career full of grand ideals and enthusiasm, but a testing scandal over 25 years ago sucked the life out of him, and he spends his days handing out worksheets and doing the crossword while drinking coffee from a huge cup called the toilet bowl In order to push him to quit even earlier, the evil superintendent assigns him to a special class with a handful of st E AR [...]
