Whatever you do, DON'T read Jamie Kelly's bestselling diaries!

The bestselling Dear Dumb Diary series is a hilarious hit! Now Jamie Kelly's diaries have a fresh look and a fun twist. Dear Dumb Diary Year Two is still laugh-out-loud funny -- but everything is another year dumber!

As Jamie continues to grapple with middle school's Big Questions, she drops even more snarky gems of wisdom 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."

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

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for DEAR DUMB DIARY:

"Benton is a genius at expressing a believable preteen girl worldview without silly vernacular or dumbing down to his audience." --KidsReads.com

"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

Children's Literature - Mary Thompson
Jamie Kelly relates her adventures and misadventures at Mackerel Middle School in a series of daily diary entries. Now in year two, Jamie, on a visit to the principal—her uncle—discovers to her horror that she must sign up for some extracurricular activities which will improve her permanent record. She recruits her best friend, Isabella, on a quest to secure their "perfect" futures. They soon notice a flaw in what they see as the whole permanent record scam. It seems you can join an activity and never go again and the permanent record will never know you quit. So they join the video game, cuisine, camera, running, dancing, soccer, and agriculture clubs, and with Angeline's help create a few clubs of their own. The author has the unique talent of seeing directly into the mind of a pre-teen girl. The illustrations and Jami's snarky comments and insightful revelations are spot on. This is a laugh-out-loud series which will thrill kids and is guaranteed to make adults smile at their own childhood memories. Part of the "Dear Dumb Diary" series. Reviewer: Mary Thompson
