Dear Dumb Diary: Year Two - Nobody's Perfect. I'm As Close As It Gets.

Love Dork Diaries and the Wimpy Kid? Now love this! Jamie’s snarky gems of insight will make you laugh out loud. Middle School is a time of big questions and big problems for Jamie Kelly to explore in her diary. But she still doesn’t know we’re reading. Psst – keep it secret! Jamie’s latest diary entries include gems like “Everybody knows that the more you love somebody, the less you try to look nice for them,” and “People don’t appreciate how much willpower it takes to do the wrong thing.” Too funny!

“Benton has a gift for writing Jamie’s voice exactly like the girl you’d want sitting next to you in class, whispering terrible comments.” Kids Books Central
