I Funny: A Middle School Story
At school and in his neighborhood, Jamie can make absolutely anyone laugh, but in front of a live audience, he seems to get pretty nervous. Jamie practices his jokes so that one day he can be on stage and “on a roll,” telling his family crazy adventure stories where he rolls past zombies in his wheelchair on the way to school.
Jamie even conquers bullying at his school, standing up to the mean kids with a simple joke or funny tale. He works up the courage to secretly enter kids’ comedy competitions and even take home a first place prize! But when he pursues comedy even further, he comes across some performance challenges.
Jamie has to find a balance between joking and mocking as he gets ready for his final comedy competition. Will the audience laugh? Or will he risk embarrassing his friends, family, and even the cool girl from school, on stage?
Check out this illustrated read (available now) as a fun break from homework over your winter vacation, and find out if Jamie has what it takes to make it in show business!
