Ms. Bixby’s Last Day by John David Anderson
Three boys – Topher, Steve, and Brand – narrate this touching story of an unforgettable teacher. Ms. Bixby is dying of cancer, and her expected last day didn’t happen as planned…leading the boys to draw on her lessons and their memories to go on an epic journey (and it is epic) in the hopes of sharing one final moment with her. (Ages 9-12)
