The Wednesday Wars Characters

As he lives in a Jewish and Catholic home, Holling knows that he is different, but doesn't know yet about discrimination or other worldly topics. Holling is a caring young man, but at the beginning of the book, he understands only things that happen in his own life and doesn't think to look at the life of others . His family has more money and his father cares a lot about the family business. He calls his house the "Perfect House" because it is well looked after and gives the image his father wants.
When Holling begins to learn Shakespeare from his teacher, Mrs. Baker, Holling begins to learn more about tragedy and what happens in life.
