Holiday Break Reading Challenge 4

Holiday Break Reading Challenge

This fourth challenge deals with taking pictures that deal with what we are currently reading.

I just started the audio of The Wednesday Wars by Gary Schmidt.

This book mainly takes place in a middle school, as Holling is a 7th grader. And it is about his time with his teacher after school on Wednesdays - which makes her hate him.

And why, do you ask would she hate him? He is the only Presbyterian student and therefore does not attend any religious classes on Wednesday afternoons.

Therefore, she is stuck with him and he believes she is out to torture him with reading Shakespeare plays on these Wednesday afternoons...

But, in their time together, Holling learns that his teacher has a pretty cool background, having used to be an runner in the Olympics.

I'm definitely liking it so far.
