Room One

I thought it was great how Andrew Clements basically taught a history lesson in this book. Readers learn about one-room schoolhouses and the benefits or complications of having them instead of normal classrooms. Andrew Clements also uses details to fully illustrate the enormity of the decision Ted makes when he decides to investigate the face in the window.


Great mystery book.

4 stars

i thought this book was pretty good. the book was well-paced, so you didn't finish it in ten minutes or fall asleep. a mystery loving sixth-grader, Ted, sees a face staring out the window of the abandoned Anderson's place. i wont give anymore away, but i will tell you this is a book you want to read. the ending is extremely clever.

Suspense makes for a good book

This book is a work that I have never run into before, which is funny because I have scoured the shelves for more of Andrew Clements' writing after reading his novel Lunch Money, and begging for more. The plot in this book is delicate, yet well-set after Ted, the only 6th grader in town, discovers a mystery that is begging for attention.
