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 1968-68.

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.

Beautiful and Heartwarming
By: Ansi Widya Prabandaru

I first read Gary D. Schmidt's Okay for Now and I was totally hooked. Then I found out that it is actually a companion of his other book, which is The Wednesday Wars. So, that's how I ended up ordering this book.

And, boy, do I love it as well.  Such a beautiful, mesmerizing, and heartwarming story. I just love it.
