My favorite book is Ms. Bixby’s Last Day. Last year, when I was in 5th grade, I asked Mrs. Langdon for a great book. She didn’t even hesitate and gave me Ms. Bixby’s Last Day. The first thing I did was read the back of the book as soon as I did I was hooked. That night I hardly slept I just couldn’t put the book down.

In the beginning of the story the three boys, Christopher (Topher), Steve, and Brand, learned of their teacher’s cancer diagnosis. The boys, along with all other children in their class, plan Ms. Bixby a goodbye party. When the day of the party came the principal of the school rushed in and played a video from their pink haired teacher. Ms. Bixby said she was sorry for missing the party but she was already in the hospital. The boys immediately y jump into action, their plan give their teacher an unforgettable day before she goes to a bigger hospital. At the end in the epilogue it shows a flash back of a few months before Ms. Bixby was diagnosed with cancer. Their writing assignment was what they would do on their last day on earth. Ms. Bixby said she’d want a large McDonalds fry a white chocolate raspberry cheesecake and a bottle of a drink from a winery. So the boys go on a quest to retrieve those items. After all three of the boys ,told about their emotional backgrounds the story ends when….actually  I’ll let you read it yourself and you can see how the book ends!
