You have been sent here to room 5E because the E stands for Excellence says the new teacher, Ms. Hill. Willie's first thought is she's made a mistake and that E is for error. The school is overcrowded with fifth graders and a special class has been created pulling students from each fifth grade class. Destiny, Willie, Giovanni and Max are the four students whose hearts and minds we will share. Ms. Hill is about to work some magic with this group as she coaxes them to try and to reach inside to find their very best selves. As they open themselves, they begin to see the strengths in those around them. Through their journal entries we meet the girl who can keep a secret and the boy who is trying to survive in spite of the great pain he is experiencing. Then, there is the boy who is afraid he will fall behind and everyone else will succeed. The fears and the hopes are heartwrenching. Poignant and powerful. 265 pages Ages 9-13
