There are two things that Stewart Wright thought he never wanted: to be popular and to have another mother.
The popularity thing only popped into his mind when Stewart's cousin came to visit and brought up the whole ordeal. After that, Stewart begins to question his friendship with his longtime best friend, Ham, who is not even close to being popular especially since skinny is not IN for a guy. And he wonders if it is worth hanging out with Rachel, the one girl he is close to but who doesn't look or act like most girls.
After his mother passed away, it was always just Stewart, his sister, and their father. But then came along the art substitute teacher, Wanda, who just appeared out of nowhere and is just mesmerizing everyone she meets, changing the way she looks along the way. Stewart's dad was sort of going out with someone, Martha, whom Stewart did not want him to marry, but after finding out that his dad got a date with Wanda, Martha didn't look so bad.
It's up to Stewart, or Wart (the nickname Wanda gave him), to discover who this lady really is, to make sure that he befriends the ones who are truly there for him, and for his father to end up with the right person.
Intriguing and thoughtful, WART has to be the one of the very few original books for teens out there. Everyone will be falling for Wart, even if his nickname is a little repulsive, and his little sister, Georgia. And in the end, not only Wart but the reader, too, learns a small but very important lesson. This is another hilarious read from Anna Myers that will have you falling out of your chair.
