The Secret Life of Ms. Finkleman by Ben H. Winters
To students, teachers are basically boring old people who have no life. Imagine though that you were a 7th grader who while working on a class assignment discovers that your quite anonymous music and chorus teacher is the former lead singer of a 1990s punk rock band?
Winters excels at capturing middle school society and maintaining a lighthearted and witty tone throughout this quick mystery. And readers will enjoy the enthusiastic heronine, Bethesda Fielding. Pick this one up for your own child and let them rock out with the students of Todd Lincoln Middle School!
