Transcript of Wednesday Wars

Life Lessons There are six main characters in my book they are…

-Mrs. Baker- Hollings seventh grade teacher. Holling stays with her after lunch instead of going to other religion classes because they don’t have Hollings religion, Presbyterian. Mrs. Baker is represented at an antagonist character but, you notice throughout the book she becomes a protagonist character.

-Meryl Lee Kowalski Holling's girlfriend

-Heather Hoodhood-Holling's unmanageable teenage sister. Who doesn’t act like it but, truly does care for her younger brother, Holling.

-Holling's Father, Mr. Hoodhood- The harsh, all about work obsessed father of Holling and Heather Hoodhood

-Mr. Kowalski is Meryl Lee’s dad.

-Holling Hoodhood The first-person and reader.r and protagonist character.He is the most important character.
Characters My main character is Holling Hoodhood. Holling I would say is a typical seventh grade boy but, hes not the most popular.Hes not that into sports. He has a few close friends. I think though throughout the book he develops many friends and finds a sport he'd love to play he seems to find who he really is during the book. About My main character Summary of the Book The Wednesday Wars is a book written by Gary D. Schmidt. The Vietnam War is an important part for this book. Meet Holling Hoodhood, a seventh-grader at Camillo Junior High, who must spend Wednesday afternoons with his teacher, Mrs. Baker, while the rest of the class has religious classes. Mrs. Baker doesn’t like Holling—he’s sure of it. Why else would she make him read of William Shakespeare plays outside of class? But everyone has bigger things to worry about, like Vietnam. Setting "The Wednesday Wars" takes place in a Long Island suburb and is full of the atmosphere of the late 1960's · Do what’s right- Holling lets his dad take control of his life. His dad isn’t helping his son in any way by taking control of him. So do what you think is right even if it’s going against your parents.
· Follow your dreams-You don’t have to be what everyone else wants you to be. If they love you they will take you as you are with the decisions you make. Holling learns that around the end of the book that he needs to make his own choices and grows up to be what he wants to be. By:Kiley Plemons
and Kole Gregory Wednesday Wars Connections Well my connections to the book are that Holling is another seventh grader. Who is going through rough times with his parents and school. Hes just another person trying to get by and thats what I connect with I'm another seventh grader with struggles. Tone/Mood The books mood is relieving during the end to know that Holling got his life fit for him.Its a little boring in some parts to be truthful but, it was a pretty good book. What this book Taught Me? This book taught me that no matter all the bumps in your life will eventually straighten out.This book assures you that you can get through everything. The book gives you a comforting and confident feeling. Recommendation
and prediction I recommend this book to anyone who likes reading books about people who go through struggles. Evaluation Well this book was alright but, like I said I admit that there is one or two boring chapters. THE END The book took us a week and a half to finish and has 264 pages. How long was the book Our prediction was that Holling would only try to irritate his teacher throughout the year.
