Just Call Me Spaghetti-Hoop Boy by Lara Williamson

It’s not very often I read a book and can’t review it straight away, but this is one of those rare occasions where a book touches me so deeply, I need to walk away, cry, think, and return.

Meet Adam Butters. He loves spaghetti hoops, comics, his bobble hat and his family. But there’s a piece of Adam missing. He has always known he’s adopted, but he knows nothing of his real mother.

When his Year 6 teacher sets a class project to research their family tree, Adam decides that he knows everything about his adopted family and it’s time to find his missing piece, his real mother. How? By being super! Then everyone will be happy.

From laugh out loud funny one page to tearily touching the next, Lara Williamson takes the reader on Adam’s heart wrenching journey to discover who he is and where he belongs. Family, friendship and love flow from the page into your heart, as we discover that there is a superhero inside all of us.


For once, I won’t tell you it’s great for fans of… Just read it.
