A stellar ensemble cast brings crowd-pleasing personality to a diverse group of misfit students and their teacher in this funny classroom story. Mr. Kermit is counting the days until his retirement, but in his final year of teaching, he is relegated to the "Self-Contained Special Eighth-Grade Class"--a.k.a. "The Unteachables." Over the course of the school year, this underdog group experiences mischievous mayhem, as well as friendship and triumph. Chapters rotate first-person narration between students and school faculty, and each narrator adds depth to the different perspectives. Most memorable are the gruff, jaded indifference of Oliver Wyman's Mr. Kermit, the well-meaning enthusiasm of Josh Hurley's Parker, and the frenetic, high-pitched energy of Chris Gebauer's Mateo.
