Johnstone brings to life one of the most endearing characters to come along in some time Holling Hoodhood is starting seventh grade in 1967 It is a time of change, not just for Holling as he begins his journey into adolescence, but for the world around him as well The war in Vietnam is raging and the deaths of Martin Luther King Jr and Bobby Kennedy hang heavy on the American consciousness by the end of the school year And for Holling, the world of nascent relationships lies before him, not to mention, baseball, camping and the constant excitement, wonder and terror of being 11 at such a volatile time.Johnstone s first person narration perfectly captures Holling s progression from an angst filled yet innocent boy, to a wiser, self aware young man His reading is touching, funny and insightful he manages to bring the listener back to a timereal or nostalgically re imagined, at leastwhen the crack of a bat against a ball in Yankee Stadium or sharing a Coke with a girl at the Woolworth s counter was all any boy could want This is a lovely, heartfelt novel, read with as much care as the author used to create it Ages 10 up June Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.Starred Review On Wednesday afternoons, while his Catholic and Jewish schoolmates attend religious instruction, Holling Hoodhood, the only Presbyterian in his seventh grade, is alone in the classroom with his teacher, Mrs Baker, who Holling is convinced hates his guts He feels certain after Mrs Baker assigns Shakespeare s plays for Holling to discuss during their shared afternoons Each month in Holling s tumultuous seventh grade year is a chapter in this quietly powerful coming of age novel set in suburban Long Island during the late 60s The slow start may deter some readers, and Mrs Baker is too good to be true she arranges a meeting between Holling and the New York Yankees, brokers a deal to save a student s father s architectural firm, and, after revealing her past as an Olympic runner, coaches Holling to the varsity cross country team However, Schmidt, whose Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy 2005 was named both a Printz and a Newbery Honor Book, makes the implausible believable and the everyday momentous Seamlessly, he knits together the story s themes the cultural uproar of the 60s, the internal uproar of early adolescence, and the timeless wisdom of Shakespeare s words Holling s unwavering, distinctive voice offers a gentle, hopeful, moving story of a boy who, with the right help, learns to stretch beyond the limitations of his family, his violent times, and his fear, as he leaps into his future with his eyes and his heart wide open Engberg, Gillian The Wednesday Wars Gary D Schmidt May , The on FREE shipping qualifying
