Overview

Bestselling author Jim Benton is back, with a brand-new spin on a favorite series!

Dear Dumb Diary is a hilarious hit! Now after 12 books (each covering a month of her life), Jamie Kelly's upcoming diaries have a fresh look and a fun twist. It's Dear Dumb Diary: Year Two! The diary entries are still laugh-out-loud funny -- but this is a whole new beginning. Everything is another year dumber!

As Jamie grapples with school, grades, and middle school's Big Questions, don't miss even more of her words of wisdom like, "If someone is really, really intelligent, it would be polite if they would ugly it up a bit before they left the house."

(Jamie STILL has no idea that anybody is reading her diary. So please, please, please don't tell her.)

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Benton is a genius at expressing a believable preteen girl worldview without silly vernacular or dumbing down to his audience." --KidsReads.com
Children's Literature - Kristi Bernard
Reading someone's diary is an invasion of privacy. You must avoid the temptation at all costs. You would not like it if someone read your private words and thoughts. Jamie Kelly lets readers know right away that she will know if they have flipped through the pages of her diary. She considers herself to be a smart girl, even a genius. Jamie likes to share thoughts on how she hates math. She does not like how math always seems to have issues to be solved and it causes her to make hideous math faces. Jamie's parents are aware that she is having trouble with math. Jamie's friend Isabella is good at math. Isabella will help Jamie with her math, and in exchange Jamie will help Isabella with language arts. Which, by the way, is Jamie's favorite subject. Jamie has the same issues as any other middle grade student you would know. She has funny things to say about her teachers and her diary shows readers this in drawings and quirky notes and scribbles. And just like any other middle grader Jamie has problems with the school's beauty queen. Her name is Angeline and she even makes dorky look adorable. The thing that really irritates Jamie is that according to Isabella, Angeline is really smart with or without the glasses. Jamie has lots of worries and issues, but her real dilemma begins when Isabella and Angeline talk about spending the summer in the soon to be built pool that will be ready for the summer at Isabella's. Jamie could be in summer school if she does not find a way to conquer her math issues. Middle grade readers will love the quirky antics and rants by Jamie as she muddles through and tries to find her way day by day. Hilarious illustrations show readers exactly what she is thinking and feeling. Benton does an excellent job of placing readers into the life and mind of a middle grade girl. Benton's tales from Mackerel Middle School will have readers anxiously following Jamie as she makes her way through her precarious life. The back of the book has a quiz asking readers if they are "vocabulicious." This "Dear Dumb Diary" series is great for getting kids engaged in reading. Reviewer: Kristi Bernard
