In his new middle grade novel that debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list, James Patterson introduces his hilarious new heroine, Jacky Ha-Ha, a class clown who makes people laugh with her so they can't laugh at her.

With her irresistible urge to tell a joke in every situation--even when she really, really shouldn't--twelve-year-old Jacky Ha-Ha loves to make people laugh. And cracking wise helps distract her from thinking about not-so-funny things in her life, like her mom serving in a dangerous, faraway war, and a dad who's hardly ever home.

But no matter how much fun Jacky has, she can't seem to escape her worries. So one starlit night, she makes a promise to keep her family together...even if she has to give up the one thing that makes her happy. But can she stop being Jacky Ha-Ha, if that's who she really is?

I wanted to read this book because it had humor and it was sad and funny! I gave this a five because it was so wonderful and smart! I got inspired from my cousins and it was summer and I read it and It made me laugh so hard! Somethings can be hard in life! James Patterson is the best author! The pictures were so good! BEST BOOK I EVER READ!! 🌺🌷

I decided to read this book because I love humor. Also, James Patterson is a really good author. It is told from a point of view that she has about 6 other siblings. Her mom is off at war and her older sister is at college. Something bad happens.

This a great book, full of surprising and exciting things. I really liked this book, and my friend recommended it to me. I read it, and it was great!
