In this Newbery Honor–winning novel, Gary D. Schmidt tells the witty and compelling story of a teenage boy who feels that fate has it in for him, during the school year 1968-69.

Seventh grader Holling Hoodhood isn't happy. He is sure his new teacher, Mrs. Baker, hates his guts. Holling's domineering father is obsessed with his business image and disregards his family. Throughout the school year, Holling strives to get a handle on the Shakespeare plays Mrs. Baker assigns him to read on his own time, and to figure out the enigmatic Mrs. Baker. As the Vietnam War turns lives upside down, Holling comes to admire and respect both Shakespeare and Mrs. Baker, who have more to offer him than he imagined. And when his family is on the verge of coming apart, he also discovers his loyalty to his sister, and his ability to stand up to his father when it matters most.

All of the events in the book had almost a too perfect resolution. It was a bit hard to believe that a 7th grader would read and understand Shakespeare without some guidance. Were kids smarter in 1968? The parents were a horror show in their absence from their kids lives. Baca ulasan lengkap

Ulasan Pengguna  - quirkylibrarian - LibraryThing

Highly readable, wryly humorous with just the right amount of family drama. Holling is an unlikely hero. His remote, selfish father, ineffective mother and snotty older sister add not only background to his school-based troubles, but makes the reader cheer for his triumphs even more.
