Review
I liked this book because when Mrs. Bryce quit, the students decided to run their own class. However, the first two days was all goofing off so Maggie decided to play teacher. Although it actually went pretty well because Maggie is really smart and it runs in her DNA. Then the class found out that have to write and perform a play for colonial day so the whole class started to panic because they had no idea what to do. Instead Samantha asked her old friend, Mr. Wolcott, to help direct the play because he used to be an actor. Meanwhile, the day of the play finally came and even though they thought they made a lot of mistakes, the audience loved the show.
