Today…. we have a review of a book I liked. There’s really nothing else to it 🙃
🌟Age Group: Juvenile🌟
Everyone knows there are different kind of teachers. The boring ones, the mean ones, the ones who try too hard, the ones who stopped trying a long time ago. The ones you’ll never remember, and the ones you’ll never forget.
Ms. Bixby is none of these. She’s the sort of teacher who makes you feel like school is actually worthwhile. Who recognizes something in you that sometimes you don’t even see in yourself. 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 she won’t be able to finish the school year, they come up with a risky plan—more of a quest, really—to give Ms. Bixby the last day she deserves.

The dual point of views (three of ‘em!) were wonderful with telling the story and weaving it together.
The characters themselves were exciting to follow and find out about, even with the book being a more “slice-of-life” sort of genre, and not a fantasy.
I really loved the insight to why exactly the trio were so determined to give Ms. Bixby that perfect last day. (because of Brand and some hotdogs 😉)
It really pained me to see… ahem… someone do something. (No spoilers 😁)
This book is honestly so relatable somehow, even though the characters are completely and obviously fictional.
And I loved all the extra bits, like the “Michelle’s” cakery (I made that word up 😝) being owned by Eduardo.
To quote Topher, “The details matter,” and the author doesn’t leave us hanging! John David Anderson is an excellent author, and I ✨dare say✨ that this is one of his best books. (Thought my favorite is definitely Sidekicked 😆)
I thought it was funny how Topher and Steve were longtime friends, and then Brand just appeared, like hi, I exsist. 😂
*cough cough* Topher and Steve are so cute together *cough cough*
🎶Songs that go with this book • OKAY: Tokyo Machine, Bud Like You: AJR, Banjo Beat (Pt. 1): Ricky Desktop, It’s Time: Imagine Dragons🎵
Sounding official is hard 😅
Hope I convinced you to read this book 😁
PS: should I do a “KotLC group chat” post?” I want to, but I’m not sure if ✨the people✨ would like that
