Rip and Red are best friends whose fifth-grade year is nothing like what they expected. They have a crazy new teacher named Mr. Acevedo who doesn't believe in tests or homework and likes off-the-wall projects - the more "off" the better. They also find themselves with a new basketball coach: Mr. Acevedo! Now Rip is knocked completely out of his comfort zone, and for Red, who has ASD, the changes are even more of a struggle. But the boys are a great team who know how to help each other and find ways to make a difference in the classroom and on the court.

I read this book because it is an OBOB selection for the 2018-19 year. I wasn't really looking forward to reading another school book, but this one was a big surprise and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I especially like the relationship between the two title characters and how their differences didn't keep them apart.

My 10 year old son and I read this book and really liked it. We liked that the students respected one another no matter what their differences were and how supportive, positive and encouraging the new teacher was. Very good story and I would highly recommend.
