Some folks have skeletons in their closets. The Waters have toilets. Jake’s mortified by his dad’s dream to open the American Toilet Museum. Toilets have caused enough turmoil in Patience, Kansas. Patience has been cursed for 129 years, since Jeremiah Waters installed the first flush toilet. The Dolphin Deluge Wash-Down Water Closet caused a stink, and since then Patience has been drying up like a cow pie in August. Jake wants out of Patience, especially when his dad gets a relic for his museum, triggering the curse’s last promise: “The day the Plunger of Destiny returns to Patience, the final destruction begins!” Can Jake save Patience by discovering what happened when Jeremiah last sat on the Dolphin Deluge Wash-Down Water Closet?

When you're reading the book Out of Patience you really need some patience because at the beginning of the book it is very slow. However, when you get deeper in the book it gets better. The main characters are Jake, his dad Jim, Howie, his dad Mr. Knight , and Cricket. In this book there is a 7 baseball games and at the end of the 7th game someone will win. Mr. Knight has a soil company. Mr. Knight is also the coach of the team and at the 7th inning stretch a Knight Soil truck comes by. The kids on the team have a song for Knights soil here it is. ¿Take me out to the cloud buy me some cow pies and buff'lo chips, I don't care if I'm up to my hips. Let me root,root,root in the Knights soil It's a smell with a charm. For it's one,two,three whiffs your out at the old stink farm¿ It's suppose to be ¿Take me Out to the Ball game¿. In this book there is a curse and it has to do with ¿The Plunger of Destiny¿. It tells you a lot about the curse during the flash backs. The flash backs are kind of boring, but it will get better more towards the end. I f you like books that are kinda slow but are very exciting at the end this book is for you.
