A courageous and boldly honest memoir. Eric Poole says things people feel but would never admit to, which makes him vulnerable and endearing.
It begins as a hilarious read, and ends as a profoundly touching tale of traumas and triumphs. I ADORED it.
An absolute must-read book for the outcast in all of us, WHERE’S MY WAND is hilarious and heartfelt. I could not put this book down. It’s a rare treat.
*Starred Review *
Punctuated with HIGHLY effective humor, this book is a magnetic collection of real stories that sheds a new light on life in the Midwest.
A witty, observant, deliciously satisfying autobiography.
Oh, my… Eric Poole’s journey of self-delusion and self-discovery had me laughing one minute, crying the next, and rooting for him every second. This charming book is a TV series waiting to happen!
Gut-splittingly funny, Wand is also a deeply moving account of a boy’s attempt to control his world with his own brand of magic.
It made me jump up and down and holler ’Yummy’, like my grandmother Mary Lucille’s red velvet cake!
Equally funny and poignant, Poole’s memoir-in-essays is like David Sedaris by way of Judd Apatow.
A touching and RIOTOUSLY funny story about one boy’s search for his personal and creative identities. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll keep your jazz hands to yourself, Mister!
