Publisher's Summary

No one in her sixth-grade class knows quite what to make of Ms. Loupe, with her short hair, her taped square "stage" on the floor, and her interest in improvisational theater. After all, their school is on an Air Force base - a place that values discipline more than improv. But her students soon come to love her fresh approach; and when her dear brother goes missing in Afghanistan, and Ms. Loupe herself breaks down, they band together to support their teacher.

What starts as a class fundraiser expands into a nationwide effort for all injured troops, and an amazing vision of community and hope.

Critic Reviews

  • Audie Award Winner, Children's Titles for Ages 8-12, 2010

"Almasy deftly portrays the students as well, in particular the high-spirited Bo Whaley, who has trouble focusing until Miss Loupe introduces imaginative learning. In contrast, Almasy expresses his cousin Gari’s reticence and feelings of isolation when her mother is deployed." (AudioFile)
