Ten of the funniest Young Adult books

Jesse Andrews is the author the novels Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl and The Haters. At the B&N Teen blog he tagged ten funny YA books including:
The Year of Secret Assignments, by Jaclyn Moriarty

Three girls at a tony Australian school are forced to write letters to three boys at a somewhat more hurting Australian school. Moriarty is superb at brewing voices and terrifically deft with form—the book consists solely of things written by the characters in it, to each other or to themselves. My face hurt from grinning so much after I turned the last page.
Read about the other entries on the list.

The Year of Secret Assignments is among Natalie Zutter's seven best girl packs in YA fiction.
