Moving from school to school is never easy. You're constantly struggling to catch up to the level of the other students. You're forever meeting new friends just to have to leave them and establish new colleagues at the new schools. You always find yourself lost in the never-ending maze of corridors as you battle to get to grips with where everything is....
But it's worse when the more unfriendly students decide to take an instant dislike to you. Tormenting you each day...pushing you to see how long it is before you're going to snap...wondering what you're going to do in retaliation to their harsh words and cruel pranks. Are you going to stand up to them, or are you going to be yet another pupil who goes out of their way to avoid them while crying yourself to sleep until you feel as though you can't take the suffering anymore?
You're going to stand up to them, of course. You're going to turn the tables on them. You're going to be the teacher to a very special class. A class where the lessons will be heard throughout the world...lessons that will never be forgotten.
This is your classroom now, and lessons will be learned.

Worth listening to. Wish it was longer felt rushed towards the end. Good read though!
One of his best ever!!
Matt has done it again! This was a totally different type of storytelling than anything else I've read and WHAT a story it is! Matt's ability to create believable, interesting characters is virtually unmatched by any other authors I've read. I was completely engrossed in the storyline, being so much in the news. Made me really think about our students' daily battles in school halls. This book grabs the reader by the throat and forces the bullying problem in front of our eyes.
Worth every penny and far more! Loved it Matt! You keep writing them and I'll keep buying them!!
