When William's teacher asks what he's dreaming about during class one day, she gets an honest answer, and he gets suspended for three days! "Serves her right," he thinks, "if you go around asking people what they're thinking, you have to put up with the consequences."

One wrong (honest) answer ends up getting William in more trouble than he bargained for. But three days off somehow energizes this listless teenager, and suspension turns into adventure when he begins meeting a series of people near his home north of Paris. It all makes for a good practical life lesson when William sees for himself how hard the working world can be for those without an education. By the end of three days, William is ready to face his teacher, and his life again. In her signature style, Susie Morgenstern tells a poignant story with a big dose of life affirming fun.
