The Wednesday Wars

The Wednesday WarsSo so good. The Wednesday Wars by Gary D. Schmidt, the Lizzie Bright/Newbery Honor winning guy, is absolutely fabbity fab and has all sorts of satisfying bits that gave me that wow life is a great thing feeling despite the fact that the main character has so many things going against him. It’s set in Long Island in the late 1960’s and Holling, going into the seventh grade, is sure that his teacher Mrs. Baker hates him and is out to torture him on their Wednesday afternoons together. She does, but nothing works out quite the way you expect when you read it.
There was laughing, there was crying, there were cream puffs. I’d never had one before but the description was so enticing I had to give one a try. Who knew that cream puffs were SO good?
