Summary "At Creighton Fischer's new school in the town of Breton, he sees the sign: 'Lane Oslo School of Educational Reform'--and he gets it. He's a L.O.S.E.R. In the classroom, he meets other teens who, like him, are leftovers, misfits, several without family or skills or confidence. Creighton and his classmates have one advantage: support and understanding from a teacher who encourages them to feel good about themselves. So when they learn that she's leaving at the end of the year to have a baby, they know what they will lose. They'll have to fend for themselves and learn to survive by caring for each other, something their teacher has taught them how to do. A Soft Place to Fall is a riveting story about kids with spirit and initiative and in some ways, a maturity beyond their years." -- Back cover.
