From award-winning novelist, a hilarious and poignant coming-of-age story set in 1967.

Seventh grader Holling Hoodhood has a tough year ahead of him. First of all, his teacher Mrs. baker, keeps giving him the evil eye. Second of all, the class bully keeps threatening to do Number 167 (and you don't even want to know what Number 167 is). Third of all, his father keeps calling him the Son Who is Going to Inherit Hoodhood and Associates. But things are changing, and while reciting his favorite curses from Shakespear's plays, Holling might just find the true meaning of his own story.

What a fun "read"! Over the course of a school year, Holling discovers many lessons about life: Adults are all too fallible, our childhood heroes are not always truly admirable, and a person really can find the truth about the human condition in the works of Shakespeare.
