Holling Hoodhood is the only 7th grader who doesn't leave school on Wednesday afternoons for religious education and that leaves him in the crosshairs of Mrs. Baker, his teacher. So begin the battles of the rats, the boys vs. the girls, Shakespeare vs. Hoodhood, Vietnam vs. Camillo Junior High School. Schmidt reaches into our hearts and pulls on the strings of our need to be accepted and our hope for a world of fairness and justice. He does this with humor, great fun, and a never-ending delight in what he has in store for us in the next chapter. A great blend. This book is the 2008 Newbery Honor award winner. 272 pages Ages 10-14
