Jacky Ha-Ha by Patterson & Grabenstein

Jacky Ha-Ha by James Patterson & Chris Grabenstein

With six sisters, a mom serving in Operation Desert Shield overseas, and a busy lifeguard dad, Jacky is desperate for attention. But when the spotlight turns on her, her stutter takes over (hence the Ha-Ha).  To deflect from her anger, she uses sharp jokes, goofy pranks, and has an overall daredevil attitude. But a caring teacher persuades Jacky to take theatre over a month of detention, changing the course of her life forever. A novel introduced by a successful adult Jacky looking back on her youth.  (Ages 8-12)
