From Booklist

Following Because of Mr. Terupt (2010), Mr. Terupt’s class is reunited and, having bonded over their experience of nearly losing their incredible teacher, closer than ever. This year, the “fall” he undergoes is a happy one: he falls in love! The kids are tasked with planning the wedding, amid being introduced to new books and navigating their own personal issues. As before, each shares the narration, with his or herown chapters told with distinctive voice and style. This sensitive progression of the story introduces more mature concepts like smoking, menstruation, and first love, but does so quite gently. Grades 4-7. --Heather Booth

Review

"This sequel can be read on its own. Moving and real."--Kirkus Reviews

"A skillful meshing of characters and story lines makes for another great read."--School Library Journal

I teach 5th grade, my students fell in love with the first Mr. Terupt book, so I bought the 2nd one thinking they could pass it around and read it as well. Not happening! I read this one and loved it but it is not appropriate for my students.

Reasons why:
-Hiding in abandoned houses drinking vodka (guy mentions putting it in water bottles to drink at school)
-smoking (tobacco and pot)

Some things I think my girls would have been fine with but would be strange for 5th grade boys
-first period
-stuffing a bra to attract a boy's attention

As a teacher, I would be careful who I would let read it, or even request parent permission. I do have a student reading it after a long discussion with her mom and her maturity level. Hope this is helpful to a parent or teachers. I love the book but was frustrated by how quickly the author has these kids grow up.

I am a fifth-grade teacher and my students and I have been waiting for this book for several weeks. We finished Because of Mr. Terupt recently and have had many great discussions about it. Rob Buyea will be coming to our school in the spring and we cannot wait to meet him in person!

Now, for my review of Mr. Terupt Falls Again...I read it in two nights after getting it electronically Tuesday. I thought Mr. Buyea did a fantastic job of maturing his students just enough to be plausible as sixth graders. The issues that Jessica, Jeffrey, Lexie, Anna, Danielle, Peter and Luke faced are those that many children their age do. They are very relatable characters! However, I must warn you that some of these issues (female development, in particular) may be a dicey subject to take on during a read aloud to fifth graders so I have to make some careful decisions. I do think many of the same themes appear again in this book, like the importance of sticking together. There are some twists and turns, but I don't want to give anything away. I will say that Mr. Terupt is the kind of teacher that these students will never forget on so many levels. He is the kind of teacher we all wish we could have had. He is the kind of teacher I strive to be!

If you haven't yet read Because of Mr. Terupt, stop right now and go read it. It's a genuine out-of-the-park home run. Plus, I'm going to ruin everything for you below. **Spoilers are coming!**

The mere existence of a second book takes some of the wind out of the sails if you haven't yet read the first. In fact, I'd advise not giving them at the same time as a gift. If kids know there's another book, they know the ending to the first one. Yep, he survives and there is a happy ending. Whle this might seem like a foregone conclusion, Buyea's first book didn't assure any such thing - one of things that made it great.

The kids in Mr. Terupt's class have grown a year on the calendar and even more through their experiences. They're now in sixth grade, a time of great change for kids today. The boys are learning to channel their energy and anger, the girls are developing and starting to think about boys and there's plenty of trouble to go around.

Lexie succumbs to peer pressure as she tries to fit in with a group of older kids, Peter is having trouble keeping his fists to himself, Danielle faces troubles on the farm as well as the arrival of her period, about which she has been told nothing. Mr. Terupt ably and aptly helps each of his charges through their time of turmoil and also explains a bit of himself as well.

The fixing here is a little too neat, Terupt is a little too much of a superhero, and no 12 year old's life works out quite so easily when fistfights and drinking are involved. While I enjoyed this book a great deal, it is a bit less realistic than the first in that way.

Having said all of that, it's still a keeper.

A good sequel. There did seem to be a lot going on in one book - but, that is, no doubt, typical for any sixth grade class. The author brought enough challenges to each character to keep the plot moving, as well as keep the reader's interest.

It was enjoyable to read about the way each student applied some lessons learned from their year with Mr. Terupt in fifth grade to their experiences in the sixth. I thought each issue was handled very realistically, yet gave readers a sense of their own choices. It's a hard balance to strike. Many books written for this age group either overlook adults totally, and lean too heavily on the under-aged protagonist making decisions/finding solutions inappropriate to real life. Or, the parents/teachers/adults in the story fix everything unpleasant and save the day. Much like real life! Some reviewers didn't appreciate the true life situations this book includes - but, I think it was all communicated with honesty - and a little humor. These are the issues kids are facing, and being forthright is better than pretending it doesn't exist.

I think this book was entertaining and yet modeled good choices (eventually!) by the characters. Another great book by a great author.

It would be fun to continue with these same students, and see how they manage the junior high school years!
