Sixth grader Jake Ali Mathews is slowly climbing his way back up the ladder of popularity. Increasingly settled in his new school and with a great new best friend, Michael, everything seems to be going okay for Jake. Until Jake's beloved teacher, Mrs. Pilsner, has a baby and the students in Jake's homeroom are handed off to the super-scary substitute, Ms. Cane. Rather than teach through traditional methods, Ms. Cane decides to have these go-getters help her with a fledgling pet-grooming company. Dogs, cats, and more get bathed, popularity struggles become boardroom struggles, and Jake's friendship with Michael is tested. Even Jake's diabolical sister, Alexis, gets in on the puppy-cleaning action and hilarity ensues. But will Jake's brand of AWESOMENESS be enough to clean up this furry mess?

        So of course, I had to read the second one. Grand Master $ash has some epic raps and Jake and Michael battle the evil Ms. Cane the substitute teacher. So awesome!! So funny!!

          I was given both Just Jake #1 and #2 last Friday when my uncle came to visit. Just Jake #2 was even better than Just Jake #1. I didn't think that was possible. Really funny and fun to read and my teacher is kinda like Ms. Cane. I'm going to read them both again next weekend.
