Courtesy of Teens Read Too. By Thriftbooks. com User, September 23, 2007. Tom Mayo, yes Mayo, hence the nickname Miracle Wimp, tells his story. Early on, Tom attempts to explain how he tried to tell his tormentors the Donkeys (jock-types) that mayonnaise and Miracle Whip were not the same, but no one ever said the Donkeys were very bright.

I picked this book up as I put it on hold. Over winter break I cleaned up all my post it notes of book suggestions and whatnot. I put all books on hold and this was one of the ones to come in right away.

This book reads like a journal even though it is not actually a journal. It pretty much follows the day to day activities of Tom Mayo, who is a kid that is not part of the "in-crowd" and does not really fall into any category.

In many ways it reminded me a version of Napoleon Dynamite(one of my all time favorite movies..."Tina, come and eat your ham!". There is artwork sketched on each page as you read. The story just follows Tom as he tries to navigate teen life and find his place and calling in the world. He works through friendship, dealing with bullies, crushes with girls, obtaining your drivers license, learning about yourself, etc.
There is nothing that will catch you off guard nor is there anything that will blow you away. However, I laughed at this book as some scenes were exactly like my life in high school. It was a fun, nice and easy read. It is good to have these books that are designed to just shed light on life without having to make a powerful statement. I think the most important thing to the story is that when high school life is all said and done, what a waste of time to worry about fitting in. In the end, nobody cares once you graduate. I know when you are in the high school(or middle school) stage of life you don't believe this, but it is so true.

Go ahead and check this book out if you are looking for funny outlook on growing up. It was a pleasure to read this.

MIRACLE WIMP by Erik P. Kraft is the account of life as a high school nerd. Tom Mayo, yes Mayo, hence the nickname Miracle Wimp, tells his story.

Early on, Tom attempts to explain how he tried to tell his tormentors the Donkeys (jock-types) that mayonnaise and Miracle Whip were not the same, but no one ever said the Donkeys were very bright.

As many will remember, high school can be filled with "painful" moments, and Tom describes them well. Constructed in one to two page snippets, MIRACLE WIMP is one high school torture after another. There are wedgie victims, a terrifying shop teacher with pointless shop class projects, gym class tortures like group showers, "flag" football, and wrestling, not to mention first dates and the nerve-racking fear of driver's ed.

Anyone with high school experience can relate to Tom's stories. Spend two hours at a local diner drinking coffee and eating pickle spears? According to Tom Mayo, that's a pretty cool thing to do when you are a high school kid with very little money, especially if the coffee is 50 cents and the pickles are free.

MIRACLE WIMP is a fast read with its short chapters and plentiful chuckles. It should be a success with both current and up-and-coming high schoolers as well as a few adults who want to remember the "good old days."

My little brother (11) got this book in the mail yesterday. He has been reading it nonstop since then and just finished all 245 pages. He has never been a big fan of reading, but he loved this book! We found something he could really enjoy reading. We're going to go look for more books by Erik Kraft.
