Mini-Review : I Even Funnier by James Patterson
Middle schooler Jamie Grimm has big dreams of being the best stand-up comic in the world – and he won't let the fact that he's in a wheelchair get in his way.
After winning the New York state finals in the Planet's Funniest Kid Comic Contest, Jamie's off to Boston to compete in the national semi-finals. But when one of his best buddies runs into trouble at school and a sudden family health scare rears its head, Jamie has to put his comedic ambitions on hold and stand by the people he cares about.
Can Jamie pass up the big competition for the sake of his friends and family?
This is the second book in the I Funny series by James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein. I've already reviewed the first book, I Funny, and I will leave a link at the end. Anyway, you may have seen that I brought both this book and the first book from my local charity shop (I will leave a link to the haul at the end) in hardback for 50p each. I finally got round to reading them so here's the review!
If you haven't read the first book then I recommend that you don't read this review as it may include spoilers to the first book.
This book follows what happens to Jamie after winning the New York state final in the Planet's Funniest Kid Comic Contest. Jamie is preparing for the national semi-finals in Boston, however during that time he is faced with a lot of trouble and problems including when one of his best friends, Joey, gets into trouble at school. That's nothing compared to when he finds out that his best friends' mum gets Cancer. As you can see Jamie has to face a lot during this preparation time and that's not even all of it.
Unlike my normal reviews, I will not be talking in detail about the different characters as I have already talked about them in my review for I Funny. I will be talking about the plot though.
Overall, I thought the plot was great and you found out a lot more about the characters in this book. I found it to be a great continuation to the first book and I enjoyed every minute of it. Just like the first book, I finished this one quite quickly though I tried to take my time with it.
I think the storyline was great and the book was brilliant.
