". . . Even when the kids drive you crazy with their antics and continued disrespect, frustration can melt away in a moment and be replaced by a fierce love and desire to protect them from the injustice they have been dealt in life. "Miss?" showcases these students and makes the reader fall in love with them through Maggie's eyes." -Cindy Jewkes, book reviewer and freelance editor
"Few people understand the hurdles and difficulties teachers face unless they've spent time in a modern classroom . . . I especially likes and could wholly endorse the author's editorial . . . on the current state of public education." -Judith Hiatt, retired teacher
"Having been a teacher years ago, I sometimes hesitate before reading a book about teaching. This on was full of honesty, hopefulness, despair, encouragement, and anticipation. All thing you have as a teacher." -S. McConathy

I would recommend this story to anyone who wants to lose themselves in a story, but with the warning that once you're in it is difficult to come back out.
We need good teachers who love kids and love to teach, allowing them to show success in skills that will impact the lives of the children in a positive way. Teaching to tests? Not in my book….. I love how she got her points across!
I love the characters and the humor… Kudos Laurel !
More than that, the book has something to say that is extremely relevant to our education system today. It is entertaining, suspenseful, sad and delightful! McHargue has style. She also has vision and shares it incredibly well in this book. I look forward to reading more books penned by her.
Please, buy "Miss" now. You may want to crack it open on a weekend when you can just sit back and enjoy it from cover to cover. You will not be able to put it down.
