"Cara Landry is a budding journalist. When she posts a scathing editorial about her burned-out teacher on the bulletin board, everything changes. Prodded into action for the first time in years, Mr. Larson challenges his fifth-grade students to create a real newspaper. Soon The Landry News gets more attention than either Cara or her teacher bargained."
Gr 4-6-A fifth grader's scathing editorial criticizing her burned-out teacher spurs him to take his duties seriously. A terrific read about free speech, the power of the pen, and the need to temper truth with mercy. (July) (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
