Wally Lamb: Wishin' and Hopin'

In a word, hilarious. Felix Funicello (a distant cousin of Annette) is in 5th grade at St. Aloysius Gonzaga Parochial School. After his teacher, Sister Dymphna, has a nervous breakdown (courtesy of Felix) the fun really starts. His friend Lonnie has been left back twice, and knows a lot about the birds and the bees that Felix's father won't tell him. Lamb's way with words will keep you laughing from start to finish.

Sure to become a traditional holiday season favorite. You can listen to Wally Lamb read the audio version of Wishin' and Hopin' himself.


  1. This was a good one! Funny, with a period theme, which was one I grew up in! I'd never read Wally Lamb before, and I thoroughly enjoyed his writing.
