Hilarious in parts, I Even Funnier also has sad moments. As in the other Middle School books, author James Patterson combines a fast-paced style with great graphics to tell an appealing story. There's a bit too much emphasis on bullying, but he represents middle-school problems with a lot of insight and humor. Readers will identify with Jamie and his friends; Jamie's character reads just right, with no self-pity and a lively appreciation for the humor of life's difficult situations.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
