Dogs Don’t Tell Jokes

This story about a 12-year-old boy who can’t stop trying to be funny – even when he’s being mercilessly teased and humiliated by other kids at school – is sweet and touching. And very, very funny. The combination of laughs and sadness is beautifully balanced and the story just cracks along at a terrific pace. I read it in a day and I’d recommend it to anyone who’s currently AT school, or who can remember what it was like to be there and NOT be one of the cool kids.
