Out of Patience

24 Mar

I knew when I read the first page of this book that I would be in Out of Patiencefor a treat.  “… It bounced off his head and flopped on the burnt-out grass.  The sudden blow was startling, but not as surprising as what delivered it.  A toilet plunger.”

This is the story of Jake Waters, who lives in Patience, Kansas with his father.  As you read the story you learn about all of the Waters men who have lived in Patience all their lives.  Jake has a plan, it’s called OOPS, short for Out of Patience Someday, that is until the Curse of Andars Cass came to fruition.  This funny coming of age story is written by Brian Meehl, a Jim Henson muppeteer, so don’t be surprised when a toilet plunger is what brings this curse back to life!
