Pay It Forward by Catherine Ryan Hyde

Can a twelve-year-old boy really change the world? Tevor is one of the few students in his class who accepts the teacher's extra credit assignment to come up with a big idea that will change the world for the better.
Trevor's plan is simple: he will do good deeds for three people and instead of getting paid back, he asks the recipients of his good deeds to "pay it forward." He wants each person to do good deeds for three other people. Think about it - if each of us does good deeds for 3 people and each of them does good deeds for three more people the effects of his little experiment could easily spread to hundreds, then thousands of people!

It really would be so interesting if we could try this in our own school .....
