No one in her sixth-grade class knows quite what to make of Ms. Loupe, with her short hair, her taped square "stage" on the floor, and the interest in improvisational theatre. After all, their school is on an Air Force base--a place that values discipline more than improv. But her students soon come to love her fresh approach; and when her dear brother goes missing in Afghanistan, and Ms. Loupe herself breaks down, they band together to support their teacher. What starts as a class fundraiser expands into a nationwide effort for all injured troops, and an amazing vision of community and hope.
Sara Lewis Holmes is the author of LETTERS FROM RAPUNZEL. As the wife of an Air Force pilot, she has lived, written, and raised a family in eleven states and three countries, including Germany and Japan. She currently resides in northern Virginia.
