"[A] carefully plotted, enjoyable, old-fashioned tale."--School Library Journal
More than anything, Ida Bidson wants to become a teacher. To do that, she must finish eighth grade, then go on to high school. But her dream falters when the one-room school in her remote Colorado town shuts down. Her only hope is to keep the school open without anyone finding out. Yet even a secret school needs a teacher. Ida can't be it. . . . Or can she? In the spirit of The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, Newbery Medal winner Avi creates an inspiring story of a headstrong girl determined to control her own destiny.

This book is actually my favorite book. I loved it because I could see myself as the main character. She does whatever is takes to realize her dreams. Great reading for a 5th grade girl like me!
