Miracle Wimp by Erik P. Kraft



Miracle Wimp is a very snarky commentary on the life of Tom Mayo by the character himself in which he details his trials and tribulations of high school- from wood shop and bullies to dating and driving. This book would be great for boys, especially reluctant readers. I enjoyed the originality of it, but don't think it held much literary merit. I have to give it a NAY for Thumbs Up! consideration.

Miracle Wimp cracked me up. The drawings are fun and Tom's comments seem to nail high school hierarchy.

I agree with Kara though - great for reluctant readers but not Thumbs Up top 20.
