The Wednesdays

    The Wednesdays, by Julie Bourbeau, is about a little village in the middle of nowhere.  It's a pleasant little place that tourists occasionally visit.  Except on Wednesdays, when strange things happen, like cakes burning, shoelaces coming untied, and pants falling down.  Fortunately, no one has gotten seriously hurt from these occurrences.  It's annoying, but the villagers are used to it, so they just use Wednesdays as an excuse to hole up in their homes, shut out the bad luck, and do nothing.  
       It's funny because everyone in the village refers to the mysterious force that causes all of the mishaps as the "wednesdays".  No one really knows what these wednesdays are until Max, a village boy, goes out on his birthday (which, since it falls on a Wednesday, is going terribly wrong) and decides to find out for himself.  With the help of a weird neighbor, his dog, his best friend Noah, and an interesting girl from school, Max discovers what the wednesdays are, and  the true story behind all of the Wednesday mishaps.  Then, the wednesdays' evil plan is revealed, and Max and his friends must put a plan to this evil scheme once and for all.

I thought that The Wednesdays was a very satisfying book with an interesting plot.  At the end, I felt like there was nothing more to be desired.  With all the book series out these days, I think that it's refreshing to have a great story that is in the form of just one perfect book.  I rate The Wednesdays five out of five stars.
