I'm starting a new post called "Hardcover vs. Paperback" which is where you choose which cover you prefer. Leave a comment sharing your opinion! Plus, if the summary sounds interesting, you may just want to read it.
The Wednesday Wars by Gary D. Schmidt
Description from Amazon:
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. Why else would she make him read Shakespeare . . . outside of class? The year is 1967, and everyone has bigger things than homework to worry about. There’s Vietnam for one thing, and then there’s the family business. As far as Holling’s father is concerned, nothing is more important than the family business. In fact, all of the Hoodhoods must be on their best behavior at all times. The success of Hoodhood and Associates depends on it. But how can Holling stay out of trouble when he has Mrs. Baker to contend with?
These covers are completely different so this is a toughie. However, because of the summary, I'm gonna have to choose the hardcover. I think that it looks more interesting and fits the time period better. Even though the paperback is colorful and cutesy, I think it makes the book look too juvenile.
What do YOU think?
