Operatic by Kyo Maclear Book Cover"Mr. K believes that everyone has a song.  He says that somewhere in the universe, there is the perfect tune for you". Charlie and her friends in 8C marvel at different genres of music as Mr. K sings and plays punk, emo, pop and opera tunes.  The assignment: each student needs to find a song for this moment in their lives, their final months in elementary school.

What song feels like home to you?
