Description
(Newbery Honor Book) In this book for readers 9 to 12 by the author of Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy, 7th-grader Holling Hoodhood is barely enduring the 196768 school year. For one thing, he's stuck alone with his teacher Mrs. Baker every Wednesday afternoon because he's the only Presbyterian in his class, and the Catholic and Jewish kids are at religious instruction. She hates him, he's certain, because she keeps making him read Shakespeare. On top of that he has to worry about the Vietnam War, a bully demanding cream puffs, angry rats, and his favorite ballplayer signing autographs the very same night Holling has to appear in a play in yellow tights.

"Holling's unwavering, distinctive voice offers a gentle, hopeful, moving story of a boy who, with the right help, learns to stretch beyond the limitations of his family, his violent times, and his fear, as he leaps into his future with his eyes and his heart wide open."Booklist (starred review)
