My Life as a Joke by Janet Tashjian

I read the first book in this series, My Life as a Book, a long time ago.  My mom saw this book on the library list and ordered it for me.

My Life as a Book is about a boy named Derek who thinks middle school is going to be awesome, but it doesn't turn out as well as he was hoping.  When they are dissecting worms in science class, he faints.  He falls on his face which makes him get a lisp.  Then, when he decides to rent a monster truck, it ends up being a bouncy house.  When will things ever turn right side up again?

I really like this book because it seems like everything is happening to Derek, and every time he thinks it is going to stop, it keeps going.  I think it's really funny because all the crazy bad things only happen to him.  One of my favorite parts is when Derek faints during worm dissection!
