Over the course of one year, friendships will bloom and lives will be changed forever.

Small adventures, exploring different meanings of the word class
The story is quite good with lots of attention to petty details, where small conflicts and dramas, between likeable characters, take centre stage. The thread of teacher Maggie's storyline, seems a little unresolved at the end, maybe this is resolved in the sequel. Maggie and her pupils despite their different ages, were all equally as engaging to listen to, as characters.

Loved how this book changed perspectives throughout the story, looking at the different students and teachers in the school.
