Today’s Free Kindle eBook: Mr. Pizza
Did you have a favorite teacher? One you know you’ll always remember?It’s 1973, and Tony Piza decides he needs a carefree year off after college—with pay.To the shock of his tight-knit family and closest friends, he postpones law school and manipulates his way into a job teaching sixth grade at a Catholic school in Staten Island, N. Y.A paid vacation if ever there was one! Yeah, right.Say hi to the Moby Dick of miscalculations. His pathetic effort is making him look bad, especially compared to the other sixth-grade instructor, Sister Theresa, an energetic young nun with a disposition that could have turned Attila the Hun into a daisy-picking philanthropist.It’s also crimping his efforts to enchant Colleen O’Brien, a stunning, straight-talking teacher who sees right through him. And, even worse, he’s starting to feel guilty about shortchanging his students.Forced to mature, Piza puts his outgoing personality and sense of humor to work in the classroom. But his irreverent antics, and well-meaning attempts to help resolve some of his students’ social issues outside of school, antagonize the powers-that-be: the alpha-male president of the school board, and the pastor who’s more interested in single malt scotch than saving souls.A showdown seems inevitable. Whether he can survive it—well, that’s something else. “Mr. Pizza” is a funny and moving tale about the profound impact of a young teacher on his students’ lives—and theirs on his.Scroll to the top of this page and get “Mr. Pizza” now.
