“If you think Mondays are bad, you should experience a Wednesday in the little town halfway up Mt. Tibadabo. While most of the villagers shutter up their homes and hunker down to avoid the bad luck that always seems present on Wednesdays, 10-year-old Max can't resist the urge to peek out the window to see what's happening. Unfortunately, he catches a case of the Wednesdays and has to use all of his cleverness to try to save himself and his family from the danger he has unleashed. A great, fun read!”
— Rachel Dunham, Once Upon a Time, Montrose, CA
Every Wednesday, strange things happen in Max's village. The townsfolk shutter their windows, lock their doors, and hunker down to outwait this plague of peculiarities referred to simply as "the Wednesdays." But Max is too curious for that, and when he accidentally lets the Wednesdays inside, his furious parents cast him out for the rest of the day.
Soon he meets the Wednesdays themselves, strange silver-eyed boy-creatures obsessed with playing pranks. Initially he thinks they're quite fun, but they can also be cruel and dangerous. And then Max discovers a terrible secret: he must put an end to the curse of the Wednesdays . . . or become one himself.
