Description - Punchlines by Oliver Phommavanh

As long as you can make a girl laugh, she'll go for you, right?

Well, unless you're a seriously weird teenager like Johnny Khamka. Surviving high school is hard enough, but how on earth can he get his childhood bestie, Josie, now a seriously hot teenager, to take him seriously? The answer is to keep her laughing. But when Johnny decides to take comedy seriously, he's suddenly at risk for not being funny at all.

From the talented and funny author of Thai-riffic! and Con-nerd comes another LOL story about surviving your teens.

Praise for Con-nerd
'Must read. Getting geeky is no longer freaky.' K Zone magazine

Praise for Thai-riffic!
'His ability to write side-splitting humour and to connect with children shine through in this, his first, novel.' Sun Herald

'I really loved Thai-riffic!, it's funny and moving, and I can't wait for the sequel Thai-Me-Kangaroo-Down-Sport!' Wil Anderson
