Why else do you think that Palmer kept both the pigeon in his room a secret and the secret about him fearing the fact that he would have to become a wringer on his tenth birthday?

  2. Peer pressure is a strong thing and he was scared of what his
    friends would think. He turned out to be a very strong boy
    when he went against everything his friends believed and
    did the right think. I also think his long time friendship
    with Dorothy made him think about things a little more
    deeper than his other friends.

  3. I would say that so his mother and father won’t freak out and people won’t laugh at him because if he told someone all of that, then the person that Palmer told to is going to tell other people which lets the whole world know and, then when they see Palmer, they are going to laugh at him and tease him.

  4. I think Palmer kept both of those secrets because he was afraid of if his friends found out they would hate him and kick him out of the group.

  6. I think your literature circle project is terrific. You have some
    wonderful comments about the book Wringer.
