Sam can't help it-he's in love with his Grade 6 teacher. The trouble is, his friend Darryl's in love with her, too. But Sam's also up to his ears in other worries: how to win the annual Hope Springs a Leak river race and how to get the town's only genuine Maple Leafs sweater before his sister snags it for her boyfriend. A rollicking tale of small-town life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hope Springs Eternal From a river raft race on a home-built boat to the capture of SCRUGS (the Society for the Complete Removal of Ugly Garden Statues), this book starts with a bang and never looks back till the race is run. Sam Foster, the hero, has just started Grade 6. He and his friends Darryl and Amanda are set to win the admiration of their new teacher, but in the end they win much more. It's funny, real, and never ever patronizes or puts down Sam or his friends. This is life as it should have happened! Try it, I liked it!

Sam Foster is in love — with his Grade Six teacher. The problem is, his best friend Darryl is also in love with her. If that weren't enough, Sam still has to come up with a plan to win the annual Hope Springs a Leak river race. And then he has to figure out how to get the money to buy the only genuine new Maple Leafs hockey sweater before his sister snags it. So many problems set the stage for a lot of rollicking adventure.
