In James Patterson''s heartwarming #1New York Timesbestseller, middle schooler Jamie Grimm faces bullying and self-doubt as he chases his dream to become the world''s greatest comedian.
Jamie Grimm is a middle schooler on a mission: he wants to become the world''s greatest standup 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 messing with Jamie as much as possible. But Jamie doesn''t let his situation get him down. When his Uncle Frankie mentions a contest called The Planet''s Funniest Kid Comic, Jamie knows he has to enter.
