Overview

The kids and teacher of Because of Mr. Terupt are back in this warm-hearted sequel.

Fifth-grade was full of unforgettable events for Mr. Terupt and his class at Snow Hill School. Seven students were particularly affected by Mr. Terupt. Now those seven students are back, and they've been granted the rare opportunity to send one more year with their beloved teacher before they graduate from elementary school. Peter's parents expect him to attend private school after sixth-grade, but Peter has plans to stay right where he is. Eager to grow up, Alexia gets in over her head with some older kids. Danielle suspects that her family is keeping a secret from her, and she's determined to find out what it is. Jeffrey makes a life-changing discovery. Curious about her teacher's past, Jessica uncovers startling details about Mr. Terupt. Anna finally decides she's ready for the truth about her absent dad. And Luke's keen observations lead to questions with unexpected answers. 

It's a roller coaster of a year as Mr. Terupt helps his students be the best they can be—and enlists their help to pull off an extra-special project. But will there be a happy ending for all?

VOYA - Sara Martin
In this companion novel to the wonderful Because Of Mr. Terupt (Delacorte, 2010), Buyea once again crafts a compelling story that picks up in the following school year. Seven students, now in grade six, spend a second year with their beloved teacher, Mr. Terupt. As they tackle peer pressures, school assignments, special projects, and the aftermath of last year’s accident, each child learns more about each other, themselves, and Mr. Terupt. Mr. Terupt Falls Again is an inspiring (albeit utopian) and thoroughly enjoyable portrayal of the difference one teacher makes in the lives of his students. As in Because Of Mr. Terupt, each short chapter is narrated by one of the seven students. All seven have unique voices and storylines, which easily meld into the classroom, providing varying perspectives on and depth to events. Buyea effectively drives the plot with humor, heartache, tenderness, and suspense. Readers will be caught up in the momentum and surprised with a few twists--with the title’s “fake out” and the re-use of an effective suspense-building literary device, these twists will be even more unexpected for those familiar with the first book. Although this title can stand on its own, libraries that do not already own Because Of Mr. Terupt, should purchase a copy today. Then, be sure to have Mr. Terupt Falls Again ready for all the fans of the first book. Ages 11 to 15.

Gr 4–7—In this sequel to Because of Mr. Terupt (Delacorte, 2010), the students are now sixth graders, happy to be spending another year with Mr. Terupt, who returns to teaching after recovering from a serious accident. Again the story is told in short chapters, each one the narrative of an individual student. This year the youngsters are dealing with coming-of-age issues. Peter is still the prankster and has spent a lot of time helping get the classroom ready and maybe justify some of the guilt he still feels about the snowball he threw that hit Mr. Terupt's head. Lexie is just trying to be noticed, and readers share her struggle to fit in. Luke spent the summer at science camp and is determined to treat challenges by collecting and analyzing data before coming to conclusions. Even Mr. Terupt opens up and shares some of his family background with the class. A skillful meshing of characters and story lines makes for another great read. References to books the students are reading, like Ellen Raskin's The Westing Game and Katherine Paterson's Bridge to Terabithia, add realism as Mr. Terupt uses literature to interpret life lessons. Even reluctant readers will identify with some of the situations and be drawn into Mr. Terupt's world.Cheryl Ashton, Amherst Public Library, OH
Kirkus Reviews
Looping with his students into sixth grade, Mr. Terupt continues to surprise them with challenging projects and perfect reading suggestions, but there are still aftereffects from the snowball Peter threw. As in Because of Mr. Terupt (2010), short chapters narrated by seven students describe the year, their final one at Snow Hill School. Peter plays with failure, hoping not to have to leave his classmates for seventh grade in boarding school. Lexie hurries to grow up, egged on by some dangerous older friends, but Danielle is the first to get her period. Jeffrey finds an abandoned baby and an outlet for his anger in wrestling. Anna and her mother learn to be senior-citizen caregivers as volunteers in a medical facility. Luke may have saved a life with his Boy Scout skills, and Jessica provides continuity with her screenplays and voiceover comments. Family worries go along with lingering questions about the health of their teacher. Sixth-grade relationships and a grown-up romance, lessons in tolerance and a fairy-tale ending make this an exceptionally satisfying school story. Mr. Terupt seems unusually skilled and perceptive, but the student voices are spot-on. Readers will be better equipped if they attended fifth grade with this true-to-life yet timeless group, but this sequel can be read on its own. Moving and real. (Fiction. 9-12)

    I am speechless!

    Okay well maybe not so speechless! This book is by far one of the best books that I have ever read! This one is even better than the first! OMG, I could write an entire 25 page essay about this book and I still wouldn'tbe able to fit all if my praise for this book into it! I hope and pray that there is a third one because my family is already tired of me reading talking about how great this one is!!! I would reccomend this book to anyone between the ages of 10 and 14. Like I said before, thus is a truely amazing book that must be read by all! Tis book definitely deserves 5 stars!!!

    Read It!!!!!

    This book is so unbeliably good. It's hard to beat the first one but I think Rob did a pretty good job. The first book I would probably say for 8 to 12 year olds. This one would probably be for 11 to 14 year olds. Did anyone else find Jessica's way the chapters were written like an interview just a little annoying?

    Epic Book!!

    I recently read the first book with my class, and the day we finshed it and read in one day. That is how good it is. The reason I bought it was because my teacher said it had muture content. GREAT book!!!!! I wish there was a 3rd book.

    Way inappropriate for ages 9-13. I wanted to read it since my class LOVED the first book. How disappointing. Maybe mention things like this once but to keep it up made me uncomfortable so I paraphrased the rest of the book. For fifth grade, it was just "too much". Here's why:
    Vodka, alcohol, cigarettes
    Bras, sexy clothing
    Periods
    Stuffing bras and breasts
    Kissing
    "love interests"
    All are developmental but not for ten year olds.
    I was very disappointed in this book. Doesn't hold a candle to the first one.

    I think that Mr.Terupt might get tired of the kids because Peter can't stop being an jokester and so does Alexia because she can't stop hanging around with the high school kids, Reena and Lisa.

    Great book with one flaw

    This book wasgreat! I would reccomend it to 9 to 12 year olds. If you have read the first book, you will fall head over heels for this one. The one flaw is that some parts are more for girls and there is a bit of romance. For all teachers this probably is not the best read-aloud book because as i said, there are some parts that are mostly for girls. I hope this review was helpful!
