Today's book is Miracle Wimp by Erik P. Kraft.
Take a look at that cover. If you are thinking that this book looks perfect for a 13-year-old boy, you are right. I glanced through it, thought, "Cute," and stuck it in my bathroom.
And that was the perfect place for this book.
This book is hilarious. I did not anticipate liking it as much as I did. Each chapter is about a page long, and full of funny teenage thoughts. They're not vulgar, hateful, rude, or anything like that. Actually, the kid is thoughtful and funny. Very funny. The drawings cracked me up too.
There's not like a central plot, but it goes through this kid's school year, his junior year of high school, I believe. I thought this book would not appeal to me. I was wrong.
If you have a teenage boy who doesn't like to read, this book is perfect. And you can steal it when it's bathroom time, too.
I'm giving this book an A.
A = Buy this book NOW
