  1. Something happened was an alright book. It related to events that are very likely in high school so it was easy to relate to, but it never really caught my interest. When Billy lost his father, he did not think he would be able to be happy again. Then Billy meets his new English teacher, Miss. Gate. Billy feels the support Miss.

    I also really appreciated that this book was told from a male point of view. The reader is able to get into Billy’s mind and understand what it is about Miss Gate that interests him. I li

  5. I was looking for a good fun book to read as a Birthday treat to myself. I had borrowed this book from my Mom (she’s mentioned in the acknowledgements…I feel so famous!) and decided this was the lucky winner. I am so glad that I did! The author has a clear voice that I would imagine teenage boys can really relate to. The story grabbed me from page 1. Billy’s Dad has died and he is struggling to deal with this loss. His mother is busy with her work, and only his new English teacher seems to “ge
