Anderson, John David. MS. BIXBY'S LAST DAY

Anderson, John David.  
New York : Walden Pond Press,  2016

Imagine the most incredible sixth grade teacher ever. Then you find out she has cancer. Three of Ms. Bixby’s students, Topher, Steve, and Brand set out to plan the most amazing last day before she goes in for treatment. Plans change suddenly when they find she has already entered the hospital. In an amazing journey told from the boys' differing perspectives, the boys hatch an incredible plan to show their appreciation, gratitude and love for Ms. Bixby. This fast paced plot weaves the boys' memories, experiences and interactions with each other and their beloved Ms. Bixby into a funny, heart wrenching narrative. Their adventures are a touching and moving testament how one teacher can impact her students beyond the classroom. Find out how they create the perfect “last day” complete with cheesecake, French fries, and Beethoven, surrounded by trees, laughter, and “Au revoir” but never good-bye.  (New Hampshire Great Stone Face Award nominee, 2018)
