Certain to appeal to boys, Miracle Wimp takes readers on an episodic journey that is sure to keep them laughing. The story follows Tom Mayo as he navigates his way through wood shop, dating, driving, and the meat-headed Donkeys, bullies who are determined to make his life miserable. Filled with humorous details and sardonic wit, Erik Kraft deftly portrays high school through the eyes of a wise-cracking misfit.
