For Hart Evans, being the most popular kid in sixth grade has its advantages. Kids look up to him, and all the teachers let him get away with anything -- all the teachers except the chorus director, Mr. Meinert. When Hart's errant rubber band hits Mr. Meinert on the neck during chorus practice, it's the last straw for the chorus director, who's just learned he's about to lose his job due to budget cuts. So he tells the class they can produce the big holiday concert on their own. Or not. It's all up to them. And who gets elected to run the show? The popular Mr. Hart Evans.

Hart soon discovers there's a big difference between popularity and leadership, and to his surprise, discovers something else as well -- it's really important to him that this be the best holiday concert ever, and even more important, that it not be the last.

    " To me confusing and strange. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danny | 1/19/2014

    " it was interesting because children can invent things that marvel and catch adults attention, and being a prideful leader. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mrs. Lynch | 1/16/2014

    " This book was pretty good. It was like a sneak peek into this one moment in time when everything and everyone just comes together perfectly. Each character was developed, although they weren't really explored in depth, and the story reflected school and classroom dynamics in a very real way. It also touched on biggers issues affecting education today, such as the lack of funding forcing districts to cut vital programs like music and the arts. "
