Fast-Paced and Fun Sequel to a Best-Selling Illustrated Novel! This quick and funny read features a teen movie star, a cool stuntman, embarrassing YouTube videos, and one lovable monkey! In this sequel to My Life as a Book
, Derek Fallon is still a reluctant reader, but now he has bigger concerns. His super-cool job as a skateboarding stuntboy on a major Hollywood film has one embarrassing little drawback: He's actually the stunt double for a girl! Not only that, but his parents are threatening to get rid of his pet monkey, and his supposed best friend just posted a humiliating video of him on YouTube! But Derek is determined to turn things around, even if it means (gulp!) reading a book! The humorous stick-figure drawings in the margins illustrate potentially unfamiliar words used in the story, such as "maintenance" and "misfortune." These clever illustrations were drawn by the author's son, who, like Derek, has been drawing pictures of his vocabulary words since he was a kid.
