  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2018 October #1
    Kiana, a bright kid whose mother ships her off to spend a couple of months with "Dad and Stepmonster," never exactly registers as a student at her new middle school. But she allows the hand of fate to nudge her into the special, self-contained eighth-grade class (aka the Unteachables), along with six misfits that the school has given up on. Make that seven—why exclude Mr. Kermit? Framed during a cheating scandal two decades ago and publicly humiliated, this once-gifted, now-jaded teacher is slouching toward retirement. After he unknowingly wins his students' loyalty, their efforts and far-reaching results on his behalf surprise everyone. The first-person narration shifts among a number of quickly sketched but vivid characters, from Kiana and her classmates to their teacher, principal, and nefarious superintendent. When the Unteachables go into action, outlandish situations tend to work out for the best, while offering the occasional disaster and plenty of laughs along the way. Korman's latest delivers what his fans have come to expect: a well-paced story laced with humor and just as much heart. Grades 4-7. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
