    i am reading this book and one of the stories that i have read is saving mrs fosdyke and emmy one of her students is the reason that she is leaving to another school. so emmy has a plan to take her backthe plan is: she will wait until she gets into the class room then get all the bigger kids in the class to lie down in-front of the door to barricade it shut. then she would call the tv news people and tell them that they were holding mrs fosdyke a hostage…

    an amazing story if you had the chance to read it then do so or you could get the book from the birmingham libary
