The Wednesday Wars | Gary D. Schmidt

“Whatever it means to be a friend, taking a black eye for someone has to be in it.”

I think this book is very humorous and I would use it in my classroom! I think children would be very engaged and it retest throughout the story.

Historical fiction. This book is the story of a boy who learns about the writings of Shakespeare and the impact they have on him. The main character does not practice a religion so he must stay with his teacher for the rest of the day who makes him read Shakespeare. The authors use of comedy and an uplifted tone throughout the book helps children how holing grows throughout the book.

I would use this book in my classroom because I feel that it can get kids to become more critical/ curious in thinking about the things they see around them

Arthur Leander, Hollywood actor, had a heart attack during a production of King Lear. A flu pandemic arrives and civilization as we know it comes to an end. Kirsten Raymonde and The Traveling Sympathy dedicate themselves to keeping the remnants of art and humanity alive. They encounter a violent prophet who will threaten the band‘s existence. Post apocalyptic book and not in my comfort zone and there didn't seem to be much point of the story.

Finished this book 11/19. So behind, but I loved this novel. It has so many things I love:antique books, Shakespeare, Victorian artists, and a small story about going to a Mozart opera that I totally related to. I felt like this book was written for me as it catered to all my loves. The romance was a bit twee, but not enough to spoil my opinion of this book. ♥️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
