(From the publisher):
Marcy Lewis hates school, her father is a tyrant, and she despairs of ever being thin. Then along comes Ms. Finney, an English teacher who’s willing to try anything in the classroom and who treats the kids like human beings. Marcy has never met anyone like her, and suddenly life has a purpose. When Ms. Finney is suspended because of her teaching methods, the whole school is thrown into an uproar. Marcy helps organize a protest, and she too is suspended. Is this new independence worth the price she must pay?
