At thirteen, Jimmy was popular, at the top of his class, and the leading scorer on his basketball team. But all that changed when chicken pox forced him to miss the championship game. Things went from bad to worse when he got pneumonia and missed even more school. Before Jimmy knew it, his grades were sinking and nothing seemed to be going right.
How did Jimmy turn things around, get back on top at school, and land a date with the cutest girl in class?
This is the real-life story of how the DUMBEST idea ever became the BEST thing that ever happened to him.
Fans of Smile, Sisters and El Deafo will love this one too.
