Average Rating:
Rate this:
Read the hilarious, candid (& sometimes mean) diaries of Jamie Kelly, who promises that everything in her diary is true...or at least as true as it needs to be. In this book, Jamie contends with Angeline, the school's prettiest, most popular girl (who Jamie thinks is a goon!) and the impending visit of her troll-like little cousin. Will Jamie survive? Will she go mad? Will she send her mom's nasty casserole to starving children in Wheretheheckistan? You'll just have to read the first installment of Dear Dumb Diary to find out!

Jaime is a typical middle schooler. She has a best friend, a crush on boys and a mortal enemy in Angeline, the beautiful, popular girl. During one trip to the Principal's office, Jaime spies Angeline's permanent record. From that moment on, Jaime makes it her mission to get her hands on that file and find out all of Angeline's secrets. But Jaime finds out that even when your plan is perfect, the outcome may not be as you had hoped.

A clever, funny little book that will appeal to the middle school girl with a sense of humour, especially as the novel is written in a diary style. Humours illustrations help add to the story's style and appeal.
