A 5th grade class in a fictional school has been thrown into a crisis: there is no teacher. Their science experiment goes horribly wrong, and now there are no rules or homework. The students are expected to pretend to be a normal classroom while trying to stay alive. It's not long before Maggie takes control of the class and starts implementing teamwork and cooperation. But she soon gets into trouble, and the principal gets wind of the situation and sends them home for the winter break.
As the title indicates, Miss Clover, a young office worker, makes the class's life more complicated for her students. Other notable teachers include Miss Goldfish (who wears a flashy orange dress and huge false eyelashes), Miss Presto (who spends most of her lesson demonstrating magic tricks), and Mr. Weed (an old, stodgy man who teaches Ancient History).
An investigation by the Herald-Tribune has revealed that the Charlotte school district could have reported Presto's case for misconduct, but did not do so. Though the accusations were serious, officials said Presto did not violate the law. A teacher could be dismissed for violating state laws, but a local school district cannot do so without a background check. Presto's dismissal could have had devastating consequences, and the Department of Education could have suspended or revoked her teaching license.
Ms. Bryce's class must keep a secret. But how can they do that? And how can they protect the secret without being spotted? This comical novel by Allan Woodrow makes the topic of working together an important one. Even though Ms. Bryce may not have been the best teacher in the world, she's an interesting character to read about. And she's not the only one who finds working in groups difficult.
