I personally cannot wait to see how the rest of the series turns out. I have found that it is a great series of books that poke fun at the naive ramblings of a teenager. Obviously, it is more or less for people who know better than to call people names and such. It IS a "diary", of course, so naturally these are opinions and not encouragements. Otherwise, it can be very entertaining,funny, and overall a wonderful series. Anyone who may think completely negatively of this book has either never read the whole series, or does not see the point to the satirical writing parodying a regular teen, which is exactly who the main character, Jamie Kelly, is. Also, most adults may not see the point of this book, most likely because they are looking for something educational. Clearly, granny panties scattered on the front lawn, and a girl actually trying to make he pets run away will prove funny for most kids, but most likely not for adults. Toward the end of each book, Jamie Kelly seems to find the good in the person she has been ridiculing,and she changes her mind about them in some way. I can't wai until the next book comes out.

    Not another one!

    When will Jim Benton stop writing these dumb, insulting, inappropriate, gross series? The Dear Dumb Diary series are not appropriate to ANY ONE, either children or adults. I was in complete shock when I read it, especially because of how Jamie makes fun of blonds, her parents, and her best friend. She encourages kids to be bullies, what is terrible. I don't recommend it to any one.
