message 46: by Dylan Br (new)

Dylan Br | 8 comments I am currently still reading The Wednesday Wars, by Gary D. Schmidt. They are still in Long Island, New York, still in 1968,still same charecters (Holling Hoodhood, Mrs. Baker, etc.), but lots more has happened. For instince, Meryl Lee, a girl whom hated Holling in the beginning of the story, but now basiclly loves the guy after Holling blurting out a sentence which he didn't want to say. It just came out, "Meryl Lee, let's go somewhere for Valentine's Day." He took Meryl Lee to a Shakespeare play and ate a hamburger and some Coke at Woolworth's, some sort of eating place. He would have taken her somewhere a little more expensive, but he didn't have alot of money (He got the Shakespeare tickets from Mrs. Bigio, the lunch lady). Another part of the story is when Sycorax and Caliban, the former 2 class pets of Mrs. Baker's class-rats-helped Holling win a race. They were chasing after Holling with red eyes and a deathly passion, climbing over even fences to get him. This helped him get on the varsity running team, the only 7th grader in that group. The rats eventually got taken away by an exterminator. The last event I will tell you about is the part I've just finished reading. Holling is running a varsity race, while all of his friends-including Mrs. Baker- were cheering him on. When he started to slow down, Mrs. Baker gave him some words of encouragment, making him run VERY fast. When he won, he couldn't hear Mrs. Baker congratulating him, and he couldn't feel the thorny stem (which was a rose, but all of the petals fell of when Meryl Lee waved it around) Meryl Lee handed him, but he sure as heck could feel it when Meryl Lee leaned in and...do I gotta say it? ...No, I don't. This is a summary of The Wednesday Wars so far.
