The Wednesday Wars

By Gary D. Schmidt

The author of this book gave a really inspiring talk at the NYC SCBWI meeting, and so I was looking forward to read his books. This one did not disappoint. Although there were a couple of issues in the beginning where I did not buy certain claims (something to do with cream puffs [yum!]), these issues were gone by the time I got about half way through. It is about a boy whose Wednesday afternoons comprise of his staying alone in the classroom with a teacher who is forced to stay with him. He is convinced that she hates him for this reason, but throughout the book he discovers a few things about himself. [YA/264 pp.]
