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.
