Author Info
Avi Wortis is known to his readers simply as Avi. Raised in New York City, he was ironically assigned a tutor in high school to help him with his writing. His first novel, WHO WAS THAT MASKED MAN, ANYWAY?, was published in 1992 while he was working as a librarian. Avi writes historical fiction, fantasies, thrillers, and comic novels. In 1991, THE TRUE CONFESSIONS OF CHARLOTTE DOYLE was named a Newbery Honor Book and winner of the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award for Fiction. In 2003, CRISPIN: THE CROSS OF LEAD received the much-coveted Newbery Medal.
Praise
"This isn't heavy stuff, but it gives a glimpse into a past where, although the form of education may have been very different from today's, the problems facing the schools and students will be all too familiar to modern readers."
From the Publisher
Annotation In this story set in 1925 Colorado, a 14-year-old girl named Ida secretly keeps a one-room schoolhouse running, and serves as its new instructor, after the teacher unexpectedly leaves town. Can Ida make the difficult transition from student to teacher and what will the school board do when they discover Ida's scheme?
