“Any book that makes me both laugh out loud and tear up on the subway will always hold a special place in my heart. I found I unexpectedly learned a lot from the misfit group known as Unteachables, and their journey to connect with each other will resonate with every kid in a classroom today.” – Shannon DeVito, Book Buyer, New York, NY
Isolated from the rest of the student body in Room 117, the Unteachables are just thatan infamous group of middle school misfits with a colorful array of quirks, they are considered simply irredeemable. To add to the fun, their newly assigned teacher Mr. Kermit is the most burned-out teacher in all of Greenwich. Once a rising star, Mr. Kermit’s career was rocked by a cheating scandal some 26 years prior, and now the only thing he cares about is counting down the days until early retirement. When a gutsy vuvuzela heist rallies them all together, the Unteachables and Mr. Kermit might finally get their true shot at redemption after all.
Hilarious, insightful, and deeply heartfelt, with a rotating first person narrative that keeps things lively and completely entertaining, this true underdog story shows that a little kindness can ignite the hidden spark in all of us.
