I Even Funnier is about a kid who is paralyzed and entered a comedy contest. His name is Jamie Grimm. Jamie’s parents and little sister died in a car crash so Jamie moved in with his aunt, uncle, and cousins who never smile. One of his cousins is the school bully.   Jamie’s other uncle has a heart attack and so Jamie has to drop out of one of the contests, but at school Jamie does his Las Vegas act and his friend puts it on youtube. The  judges see it and invite him to be one of the wild card contestants. Jamie won the wild card contest. My favorite part was when Jamie got invited to be a wild card contestant. If you like comedy you should read this book.
