An amusing story

by booksonthebeach (WorldCat user published 2008-10-25) Good Permalink

When fifteen-year-old Russell Culver's teacher dies right before school is to start, Russell is thrilled.  But his dream of an endless summer is not to be, as the school board finds a replacement right away--one who already knows all his tricks and excuses. 

This was a fun read,...
