The Wednesday Wars by Gary Schmidt

Holling is sure his teacher hates his guts so he asks his family for help. His Mom, says "you're teacher couldn't possibly hate you." His father says, "Stay out of trouble, her family may need an architect one day." And his sister of course is most helpful. "You don't have any guts, how could your teacher hate them." So it will be just Holling against Mrs. Baker every Wednesday afternoon. A thoughtful read, with great characters and unexpected humor. Grades 5 - 7
