Publisher's Summary

What would happen if the noisiest, most talkative class of 5th graders in history dared each other not to talk for 48 hours? This is the premise Andrew Clements explores in one of his most compelling stories yet.


What the Critics Say

"Despite the rivalry that started the contest, the longstanding animosity between the boys and girls dissipates as the students bond over the experiment. Presuming the novel doesn't generate similar contests in real life, readers may be compelled to use their voices to praise Clement's deft handling of an interesting premise." (Publishers Weekly)

Loved it!

Andrew Clements has done it again. We listened to this on car rides and I probably enjoyed it as much as the kids.

Clements did it again!

I bought one copy of the book for my bookshelf and had 124 Fifth graders fighting to check it out, so I decided to buy the Audible version and we listened to it while we did our work (and yes, they still were fighting to check out the book to my surprise!)

And of course, Clements story is wonderful.

This ended up being one of my best teaching tips for keeping a large class of rowdy kids quiet for a good length of time :-)
