For fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Big Nate comes the third book in this laugh-out-loud series about a class clown faking his way through middle school from comedian and film star Craig Robinson, #1 New York Times bestselling author Adam Mansbach, and NAACP History Maker recipient and cartoonist Keith Knight.
Life couldn’t be better for Jake. He’s a student at Music and Arts Academy and a budding comedian, and he finally put an end to his fake-ster ways … or so he thought. There’s a new girl at school, and Jake would do anything to impress her, even pretending to be a master chef. And a world-renowned barber?
But at home, Jake is less impressed with his mom’s news: she’s pregnant. Now Jake has to fake being happy about becoming the Middle Child. The King of Cool is about to drop his chill.
Luckily, he has good friends and laughs on his side, along with more than two hundred illustrations—all about him!
