The internationally acclaimed sensation that started a movement of giving. When his teacher sets a challenge to his class to come up with a plan to change the world for the better, twelve-year-old Trevor McKinney's idea is simple, do a good deed for three people and ask each of them to pay it forward to three others who need help. At first, the plan goes awry, and Trevor's project seems valuable only as a lesson on the dark side of human nature. But then something amazing starts to happen, a vast movement of kindness and goodwill spreading beyond Trevor's small California town and across the world. Soon a journalist with a story of his own tracks down the source of the epidemic, 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 hes in front of his class. In the end, Pay It Forward is the story of seemingly ordinary people made extraordinary by the faith of a child - a story so powerful it has inspired people around the world to follow its example in their own lives. Anyone who has ever despaired of one persons ability to effect change will rejoice in this novels triumphant message of hope
