Class 507 is the worst class Ms. Bryce has ever taught. And she would know -- she's been teaching forever. They are so terrible that when a science experiment goes disastrously wrong (again), Ms. Bryce has had it and quits in the middle of the lesson. But through a mix-up, the school office never finds out.

Which means... Class 507 is teacher-free!

The class figures if they don't tell anyone, it'll be one big holiday. Kyle and his friends can play games all day. Samantha decides she'll read magazines and give everyone (much needed) fashion advice. Adam can doodle everywhere without getting in trouble. Eric will be able to write stories with no one bothering him. And Maggie... well, as the smartest kid in the class she has an ambitious plan for this epic opportunity.

But can Class 507 keep the principal, the rest of the students, and their parents from finding out... or will the greatest school year ever turn into the worst disaster in school history?

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3–5—The fifth graders in Class 507 can be challenging, frustrating, and disruptive. After months of eraser fights and daily visits to the principal's office, an over-exploding science project eventually tips the scales. Their teacher, Ms. Bryce, immediately resigns, but her declaration never actually reaches the principal. It doesn't take the students long to determine that their class is "teacherless" and no one knows! Instantly, the fifth graders begin dreaming of daylong recess, no rules, and no homework. After further thought, the students begin to worry about a scheduled field trip, student duties, and their upcoming class play. Ultimately, they realize they must band together to keep their cover. Just how long can they keep their secret? Woodrow provides readers with multiple perspectives on the humorous and engaging scenario. The narration of events alternates among five exceedingly different student perspectives. For example, Maggie, the studious Harvard hopeful, is determined to take the teacher's role, overseeing all classroom needs. The quiet loner, Eric, must take risks by letting his voice be heard to protect the class secret. While having differing viewpoints is valuable to the plot, individual character voices are weak; tone, word choice, and sentence structure all remain similar despite the changing viewpoints. Additionally, the central plot loses steam with the multiple perspectives, as side plots are initiated and third tier characters are introduced. VERDICT Woodrow's realistic novel is light, with a handful of coming-of-age lessons, yet it fails to quench the thirst of the original premise, a teacher-free fifth-grade classroom.—Mary-Brook J. Townsend, Episcopal Collegiate School Library, Little Rock, AK
