One Mississippi by Mark Childress
The protagonist of this novel is 16 year old Daniel Musgrove. His family moves from the Midwest to rural Mississippi during his junior year of high school. Rather than have no friends, he latches on to goof-ball Tim Cousins, whose motto is "Everything is funny all the time." And the book is hilariously funny almost until the end, when I was disappointed by the turn of events. Even so, I loved reading One Mississippi.
