Charming, easy read which I found myself getting annoyed with as time passed. Somehow the focus of the book is too much on Davidson and not focused enough on the kids on the bus. He appears to marvel at his ability to notice and care about the kids, and to start treating them like anybody else. He misses the point, in that they ARE like everyone else and have the same needs and wants. He is not special because he noticed them. Plus, from what he does say about the kids, they are significantly more interesting than he is and have more to say.
