Inside Front Cover:

More than anything, fourteen-year-old Ida Bidson wants to become a teacher. That’s not going to be easy, especially for a girl living in the remote Colorado mountains in 1925. Still, Ida knows she can do it. She just needs to finish eighth grade so she can go on to high school.

But then her town’s one-room school unexpectedly closes, and for the first time, Ida’s dream seems unattainable. Her only hope is to keep the school open without anyone finding out. Yet even a secret school nees a teacher. Ida can’t be it... Or can she?

In the spirit of The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, two-time Newberry Honor recipient Avi once again has created a compelling story featuring a headstrong and memorable heroine who is determined to take control of her destiny.
