This chapter fit in the larger novel because this just adds to the "Don't judge a book by it's cover." Meryl Lee seems like she is the perfect girl in Holling's eyes. Unfortunately, Meryl Lee shows her father a drawing Holling made that was his father's design for a new school. Meryl Lee's father was needing a design as well for the same project. He stole the design and used it for himself and ultimately beats Holling's dads company by using the design. Meryl Lee swears she did not mean for her father to take the design.

(Page 130) Holling's father was receiving the award and the whole family went to support him. Right before they were about to leave home the ceiling in the Perfect Living Room fell and broke the piano even after carpenters had come and fixed it.
During school one day Holling asked Meryl Lee if she wanted to go somewhere for Valentine's Day. Meryl Lee refused to go because in previous chapters Holling had called her some rude things. He had called her "blind mole." (Page 136) He finally convinced her to go with him.
Mrs. Bigio had made Valentine cupcakes for everyone in the school and Mrs. Baker sent Holling to go and get the cupcakes. Mrs. Baker would not let him go until 1:18 when the cupcakes would be ready at 1. (Page 142) When Holling got the cupcakes Mrs. Bigio also handed him an envelope with two tickets to Romeo and Juliet for him to take Meryl Lee to. This foreshadows there date later in the chapter.

In this presentation we went over the chapters timeline, main characters, historical event, Shakespeare allusion, and essential idea.
The flower child was introduced during the Vietnam War. The flower child supported peace. You may also know the flower child as it's more common name, a hippie. These children included girls and boys. This was an important part in the 1960s because the Vietnam War was very controversial. These kids and adults usually had long hair and very colorful clothes. Holling's sister is an excellent example to a flower child's life.
The Shakespeare play alluded to in this chapter was
Romeo and Juliet
. Mrs. Baker assigns Holling to read it. He read it in three nights which takes a lot more dedication than most people have to read plays. It's almost like Holling is Romeo and Meryl Lee is Juliet because they are in the families of two competing businesses.
Romeo and Juliet
is about two people falling in love but their families forbidding it. They are from different royal families and are not allowed to love each other. After they can't take not being able to with each other anymore, Juliet drinks a poisonous potion that
kills her. When Romeo finds out she drank poison, he drinks a potion that did kill him. Juliet finds that Romeo is dead and kills herself with a knife.
