IndieReader APPROVED Award
UPDATED with an editorial by the author: "Flap Your Wings (and maybe stomp your feet a little)!
Maggie McCauley, a feisty young Army veteran, believes her new life as a 7th grade English teacher will be a breeze. She finds out quickly how very wrong she is as she deals with out-of-touch administrators and an inappropriate security guard who resorts to violence. In a school targeted for closure, how will she possibly succeed? And what will happen to her students?
Written with love, humor, compassion, and exasperation, "Miss?"--a contemporary novel based on actual events--presents an insider's view of the challenges teachers and students across the nation face in today's test-dominated public school system.

". . . Even when the kids drive you crazy with their antics and continued disrespect, frustration can melt away in a moment and be replaced by a fierce love and desire to protect them from the injustice they have been dealt in life. "Miss?" showcases these students and makes the reader fall in love with them through Maggie's eyes." -Cindy Jewkes, book reviewer and freelance editor
"Few people understand the hurdles and difficulties teachers face unless they've spent time in a modern classroom . . . I especially likes and could wholly endorse the author's editorial . . . on the current state of public education." -Judith Hiatt, retired teacher
"Having been a teacher years ago, I sometimes hesitate before reading a book about teaching. This on was full of honesty, hopefulness, despair, encouragement, and anticipation. All thing you have as a teacher." -S. McConathy
