I FUNNY, by James Patterson

I funny

The story: Jamie Grimm has a lemon of a life. He’s had to move in (permanently) with his aunt and uncle, his cousin Stevie bullies him without ceasing, and he’s stuck in a wheelchair for the rest of his life. But Jamie keeps turning those lemons into lemonade, and with a little help from his friends, he might just turn out to be the funniest kid on the planet–or at least, in the state of New York!

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Here’s a fun and funny story about Jamie–a non-whining hero who uses a crummy situation (a lackluster adoptive family, bullying, unexpected disability, and the deaths of both parents a year ago) to help him crank out the funny stuff. You’ll cheer for Jamie every step of the way…even through the booger jokes!
