What are some funny teen novels?

I listen to audio books with my 14 year old daughter and 12 year old son. We have listened to books such as the Series of Unfortunate Events series, Artemis Fowl series, The Shapeshifter, The Graveyard book and many others.

I have been looking for some really funny but clean books to try to get and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions? It seems that most of my Google searches are missing the mark some!

I don't have a problem reading them if they are not available in audio format.

Thanks in advance!!

    How about Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan and the Ranger's Apprentice series by John Flanagan? Both are good clean novels and suitable for ages 12 on up though the books do mature slightly as they continue.
