    (121)

    Holling Hoodhood is really in for it. He's just started seventh grade with Mrs. Baker, a teacher he knows is out to get him. The year is 1967, and everyone has bigger things to worry about, especially Vietnam. Then there's the family business. As far as Holling's father is concerned, the Hoodhoods need to be on their best behavior: the success of Hoodhood and Associates depends on it.

    What did you love best about The Wednesday Wars?

    The performance competes for first place for me with the actual novel. Joel Johnstone reads in completely believable voices, often dripping sarcasm. Love Danny's breaking voice! And the novel is a masterpiece. I loved it. It's touching and funny and serious and smart all at the same time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Wednesday Wars?

    It would be a spoiler, but it has to do with miracles and strawberries.


    Which character – as performed by Joel Johnstone – was your favorite?

    I think Holling is my favorite, though I loved Mrs. Baker, Holling's dad, and Danny too.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Oh yes!


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended. For anyone over age 9. Truly a great book.
