As narrator Ariana Delawari portrays fifth-grader Winnie, other voices join in and express the playfulness of this story. Winnie's parents are divorcing. Delawari plays up the irony of their demands for equal time and their competition in celebrating every ridiculous holiday--like Peach Cobbler Day. When Winnie spends Wednesdays alone in the elaborate tree house between her parents' two homes, Delawari makes Winnie's mounting frustration clear. She just wants to finish her homework assignment so she doesn't fail fifth grade. Multiple voices chime in as Winnie's nine classmates deliver compassion, recipes, details of craft projects, and their own dissatisfactions. The additional voices are a great way to represent the children's diversity. Their contributions also suggest the story's many forms of communication--from sticky notes to newspaper articles.
