Where’s My Wand?: One Boy’s Magical Triumph over Alienation and Shag Carpeting
By Eric Poole

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. It was an easy, comfortable read. Even the character of his mother whom I began by despising turned out to have reasons why she was who she was.

‘Where’s My Wand?’ follows several years of the adolescent growth, family drama, sexual confusion and social interaction problems of Eric. Covering everything from a mother who is a totalitarian nightmare, a browbeaten and cowed father and a sister who really doesn’t like him to how to deal with friends who have no arms and what to do when your crazy aunt wants to take you camping and what happens when the magic fails you.

I couldn’t put the book down and finished it the evening I picked it up. Highly recommended.
