Description of Characters
Holling Hoodhood: The 7th grade protagonist he started out thinking that everything revolved around him and thought that Mrs. Baker was out to get him. However realized that she is more worried about her husband. He also also realized how much he loved his sister and we realized that to when he said "She knew that I would be the only one awake to pick up the phone-I started to cry right away. And she did to." (226)
Heather Hoodhood: Hollings sister, she is lost in a way and her parents are not helping her. So she runs away and but half way through the trip she realizes that she wanted to go back. She gets Holling to help her get home but when they meat in New York City they have a good day just hanging out. Holling said this "It was spring in Central Park, and being there th my sister was enough." (234)
Mrs. Hoodhood: Cared more for Heather than Mr. Hoodhood and that can be shown when she gives Holling the money to go get Heather have lunch and get back. "She will be at port at 10:50. 'repeated my mother her hand up to her mouth and her eyes suddenly filled." (230) This quote shows that she wants Heather back and loved her.
The Allusion of Shakespeare
The allusion in the book was the story Hamlet. According to the resources we found they all some what agree that Hamlet was arguably an amazing character and one of the best. Hamlet was the Prince of Denmark the setting is London, England, early Seventeenth century. Hamlets father was murdered by his uncle Claudius because Claudius wanted the throne. Hamlet feels like he needs to avenge his fathers death because his father comes back as a ghost and tells Hamlet to avenge him. In Act III scene IV Hamlet kills Polonius, the chief counselor of the king, by stabbing him. Hamlet gets sent to England to be executed but stops in Denmark and confronts Laertes, the son of Polonius, the fence and in the end all the royals that spoke at all in play died no joke.

Leonid Brezhnev was an archetypal Soviet politician. He was a communist and was elected President of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet in 1960, until 1964. He emerged at a national level during the cold war. It was a dangerous era. Holling mentions his thoughts of Leonid just dropping a bomb on the Camillo Junior High.
