Grimm is a middle schooler on a mission. He wants to become the world’s
greatest stand-up comedian, even if he doesn’t have a lot to laugh about these
days. He’s new in town and stuck living with his aunt, uncle, and their evil
son Stevie, a bully who doesn’t let Jamie’s wheelchair stop him from giving
Jamie a good pounding every once in a while. But Jamie doesn’t let his
situation get him down. He practices his craft every day on friends, family,
and the willing customers at his Uncle Frankie’s diner. When Uncle Frankie
mentions a contest called The Planet’s Funniest Kid Comic, Jamie knows he has
to enter. But are the judges only rewarding him out of pity because of his
wheelchair, like Stevie suggests? Will Jamie ever share the secret of his
troubled past instead of hiding behind his comedy act?
the bestselling success of the hilarious Middle School, The Worst Years
of My Life, James Patterson continues to dish out the funnies in another
heartfelt middle school story.
