So what's up this year at PS 1? The first day of school, twenty-two fifth graders are sent to small, stuffy room 5E with a teacher named Ms. Hill. Little do they know that Gio the clown, Destiny the chatterbox, Willie the daydreamer, and Maximo the sullen boy are going to see some big changes this year, and Ms. Hill is going to find all kinds of sneaky ways to get her students to talk and write about them. Told in four voices, this heartfelt and sometimes hilarious story chronicles, the ups and downs as a unique group of city children learn to cope with their complicated lives.
