Wringer Book Project

by Blake Weaver


Wringer is a book that talks about how Palmer LaRue, the main character, has a pigeon that flew into his room and is hiding it from everyone else in the town. He needs to hide it because his hometown of Warmer has an annual pigeon day which they capture pigeons, put them in crates, release them, the shoot them out of the air. Palmer names this bird Nipper and protects it with all of his life.
