    ePUB Wringer Kindle Ê Í bvlive.co.uk Í wringer book, Wringer MOBIMaybe my third time for this one and I've upped my opinion a bit I had previously found Spinelli's premise a little unrealistic giving him the opportunity to make some possibly overbearing moral points Palmer LaRue dreads his upcoming tenth birthday He wants to fit in with a small gang of rude boys who bully the girl who is his neighbor and erstwhile friend On his next birthday he will become a 'wringer' one of the boys who snaps the necks of wounded birds at Waymer Pennsylvania's annual Pigeon Day shoot Surely I thought nothing like pigeon shoots has happened in recent years Spinelli must have conflated and inflated in order to condemn However it really happened For 66 years Hegins Pennsylvania obviously the model for Spinelli's fictional Waymer held a Labor Day pigeon shoot where than 5000 birds were killed Proceeds from the event built and maintained the town's park just as with Waymer Young children called 'trappers' were recr

    ePUB Wringer Kindle Ê Í bvlive.co.uk Í wringer book, Wringer MOBIThis book was uniue and captivating It's definitely intended for younger kids but it's still good all the same Similar to another of Jerry Spinelli's books Stargirl it tells young readers that they don't have to give in to peer pressure If they don't feel something is right they need to voice their opinion This is an important idea to instill at a young age in preparation for teenage hood kids need to know that they don't have to follow the crowd even if it seems as if they're the only one

    ePUB Wringer Kindle Ê Í bvlive.co.uk Í wringer book, Wringer MOBIThis is definitely one of the most powerful emotionally charged books I've ever read in my entire life I'm not even exaggerating I'm all dead serious this book kept me on tenterhooks with its potent writing which packs such an incredible strong punch and various emotions fear anxiety affinity and so many Once I picked up the book I could hardly put it down This book gripped me right from the beginning and never let me go until the very last page In all honesty I have never read any children's book like this before The most noticeable thing about this book is the emotions it delivers This book is narrated from an omnipotent point of view yet heavily focuses on the protagonist Palmer a 9 year old boy who doesn't want to turn 10 years old

    ePUB Wringer Kindle Ê Í bvlive.co.uk Í wringer book, Wringer MOBIOne thing that Jerry Spinelli really seems to capture well about children—their experience of a larger than life world The ecstasy of a snow day The stinging annoyance of a neighbor being called a 'friend The blunt hungry yearning for acceptance In Maniac Magee this hyper reality took the form of the mythic In Wringer it's visceral our protagonist's dread of turning ten 'In his dreams he looks down to find his hands around the neck of the pigeon It feels silky The pigeon's eye is like a polished shirt button The pigeon's eye is orange with a smaller black button in the center It looks up at him It does not blink It seems as if the bird is about to speak but it does not Only the voices speak 'Wring it' ' In Palmer's town on the last day of Family Fest thous
