Book Review #38
The Wednesday Wars by Gary D. Schmidt
Rating: three stars (out of four)
Holling Hoodhood is exasperated when he finds out that he is going to be spending every Wednesday afternoon with his teacher, Mrs. Baker. He knows that she hates his guts, why else would she make him read Shakespeare? Over the course of 7th grade Holling grows and learns that sometimes things are not always what they seem.
I thought that this was a good book - I read it because I was recommended it, and I had loved, "Lizzy Bright and the Buckminster Boy" by Gary D. Schmidt. I enjoyed the characters, but found the beginning of the book a little lacking in the entertainment department, nevertheless I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to my friends.
