A funny, sharply observed look into the life of a teacher and another journey down the rabbit hole to the wonderland of middle school, memory, daydreaming, and the extraordinary business of growing up.
From the Publisher:
Ms. Beatrice Hempel, teacher of seventh grade, is new—new to teaching, new to the school, newly engaged, and newly bereft of her idiosyncratic father. Grappling awkwardly with her newness, she struggles to figure out what is expected of her in life and at work. Is it acceptable to introduce swear words into the English curriculum, enlist students to write their own report cards, or bring up personal experiences while teaching a sex-education class?
 
Sarah Shun-lien Bynum finds characters at their most vulnerable, then explores those precarious moments in sharp, graceful prose. From this most innovative of young writers comes another journey down the rabbit hole to the wonderland of middle school, memory, daydreaming, and the extraordinary business of growing up.|
Annotation:
Ms. Hempel, a young junior-high school teacher, struggles with her new identity as an authority figure and an adult in this precise and finely wrought novel.

Praise

"A subtle, dazzling novel about a fledgling middle-school teacher who reveals herself slowly, in layers....Every chapter in this short, taut novel brings revelation. " (starred review) 07/01/2008
