For Hart Evans, being the most popular fifth grader has its advantages: kids look up to him and teachers let him get away with everything. But during one choir practice, Hart zones out too far, accidentally flinging a rubber band at his teacher. Mr. Meinert realizes that if Hart is ever going to discover his musical potential, his punishment must march to a different drummer. And then, as Mr. Meinert is about to leave school because there is no funding left for his job, he orchestrates a class vote to appoint Hart as the new interim choir director. Now it's Hart's job to ready the class for the annual Holiday concert, and ultimately to convince the board why his teacher should stay in school.

When shooting a rubber band in Chorus triggers backlash from his teacher, Hart Evans is thrown into a tailspin. The class votes him as the new director. From there , we can see a change in the boy, and it shows just what a decision can turn into.

Through the eyes of both a student and a teacher, we see the world of school. Their differing viewpoints balance each other out, providing an adult perspective and a child’s. The same thing can mean something vastly different to different people.

I would recommend this book for anybody who wants to read a good story, whatever the age.
