Speak Chapter 46 Summary

Death of the Wombat

  • Principal Principal announces that they are no longer the Merryweather Wombats. Now, they are the Merryweather Hornets.
  • This is partly economic. The wombat mascot costume was going to be so expensive it would take away money from the prom.
  • Melinda doesn't think this new name is a good idea. She's allergic to hornets. They make her skin break out and her throat swell.
