A deftly told tale of a moral dilemma, Jerry Spinelli's Wringer was named a Newbery Honor book in 1998. Palmer LaRue grows up in a small town with a horrific tradition: each year, pigeons are released and slaughtered with shotguns to raise money for a school playground. Wounded pigeons are put out of their misery by young boys called "wringers." As Palmer comes of age, he's expected to become a wringer, but secretly takes in a pigeon as a pet and must decide whether to take part in the ceremony. A Fine first edition in a  Fine dust jacket.
