The Wednesday Wars - Gary D. Schmidt
My Book Beginning
Of all the kids in the seventh grade at Camillo Junior High, there was one kid that Mrs. Baker hated with heat whiter than the sun.
And let me tell you, it wasn't for anything I'd done.
If it had been Doug Swieteck that Mrs. Baker hated, it would have made sense.
This beginning made me want to read on to find out why this teacher hated him or was it his imagination? My review will be posted tomorrow as I'm almost done with this book.
My Friday 56
At lunch recess, Doug Swietck's brother lurched across the field, sixth graders scurrying out of his way as if he was a southwest wind about to blister them all over.
"Thou jesting monkey thou," I said.
Not that he could hear it.
Right after recess, I found that the eighth graders had filled the boy's restroom with smoke so thick you couldn't even smell the disinfectant.
Book Blogger Hop
If you could give away books instead of candy to trick-or-treaters on Halloween Night, what would the titles be?
The If You Give A......books by Laura Numeroff. I've got the whole series and my grand kids just love them.
