Reviews for The Wednesday Wars (3 vol.)
RatingComments
5This book grabs readers from the first sentences and careens them through a year in the life of a seventh-grade boy. The narrator doesn't want to follow in his father's footsteps into architecture, but he also doesn't really want to do much at school. His teacher has other ideas. Against the backdrop of the escalating Vietnam War and social changes sweeping America, the book provides a beautiful example of how a persistent and determined teacher who believes in a student most other people have written off as a lost cause can make a difference. The book also touches on the importance of friendships and trying to see the world through other people's eyes and reach a place of understanding instead of stereotypes and thoughtless following after the crowd. Bravo!
