Wringer by Jerry Spinelli

Cover imageThe book I have read was Wringer by Jerri Spinelli. This book is about Plamer LaRue a kid who unlike most others in his town is dreading the day he turns ten. In this town there is a special event called Family Fest.This is just like a carnival, with rides games, and lots of food.The only thing bad about it is that on the last day they take 5,000 pigeons and have a sharp shooting contest. All of the ten year olds in the town have to clean up after each shooter takes his turn.Palmer never liked the idea of killing pigeons in the first place, but when a pigeon comes to his house and won't leave he has to choose between what is right and what everyone else is doing. I reccomend this book because it is an easy read and it has a strong message. This novel will have you reading until the very end.
