This book is a treasure. Three sixth grade boys tell about their epic adventure. They skip school together to go visit their teacher in the hospital and spend a last day with her. Their plan is intricate and involves multiple bus rides. Despite encountering multiple obstacles, they persevere. We read the story in alternating chapters giving each boy a voice. It took me a bit to get each boy straight, but it was worth it. What a tender, bittersweet, thrill of a ride. Highly recommended; filled with heart and wisdom for all ages.
