Description: Catherine Ryan Hyde s international sensation, "Pay It Forward, "is the moving story of Trevor McKinney, a twelve-year-old boy who accepts his social studies teacher s challenge to come up with a plan to change the world.Trevor s idea is simple: Do a good deed for three people and ask them to "pay it forward" to three others who need help. He envisions a vast movement of kindness and goodwill spreading beyond his small California town and across the world. However, when Jerry, a bum to whom Trevor gave his allowance, returns to a life of dissolution, the project seems valuable only as a lesson on the dark side of human nature. But ultimately Trevor is vindicated. At first people don t know how to explain the odd dip in crime rates across the nation, but a journalist with a story of his own tracks down the source of the epidemic of random acts of kindness and makes Trevor a celebrity.Yet Trevor has problems closer to home: he wants his pretty, hardworking mother to see the softer side of his beloved teacher, Reuben St. Clair, a scarred Vietnam veteran who seems to come alive only when he s in front of his class.Anyone who has ever despaired of one person s ability to effect change will rejoice in Trevor s courage and his determination to see the good in everyone.
