Holling are you attending Temple Beth-El or Saint Adelbert's ?
The Wednesday Wars by: Gary D. Schmidt
First day of school and Holling thinks about the list that doug swideck made that is 410 ways for a teacher to hate you
Holling lives in the "perfect House" which is what his dad calls it. It is in the middle of the town and he is Presbyterian
whats in that box?
When Mrs. Baker calls Holling's name during roll, he thinks her tone is hopeful when she asks if he attends Temple Beth-El or Saint Adelbert's. When they both ascertain that he'll be spending Wednesdays with her, and they both dont feel good about it.
Holling cleans Mrs.Baker's classroom and wonders what is inside the box.
