The Secret Life of the Underwear Champ

Author: Betty Miles

First line: The whole thing began on a street corner in New York City.

Why you should read this book: Larry Pryor is minding his own business after an unpleasant dental appointment when he gets discovered by a big modeling agency. Since he is a fifth-grade boy, he could care less about this development and is irritated with anything that interferes with baseball practice, but his family could use the money, so he agrees to film some commercials. Only too late does he learn that the commercials are for underwear, and the whole world is going to see him on TV without his clothes.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You don't see anything funny about underwear.
