*** The Wednesday Wars, Gary D. Schmidt, 2009
I'm not sure what got me to read this book. I've heard good things about it, but I'm not a regular reader of YA fiction. But somehow it ended up on my Kindle and I read it.
Excellent book for anyone, regardless of age. It's set roughly around the same time as Welcome to Fred. Here are a few quotes that stuck with me:
- I never thought being in seventh grade would mean so many death threats.
- It was what eighth graders whose career goal was the state penitentiary did.
