Overview


Bestselling author Jamie Kelly has been keeping diaries for years . . . and each one just gets funnier! But she has no idea that anyone is reading them. So please, please, please don't tell her.

Something strange is happening at Mackerel Middle School. Even stranger than Jamie and Isabella becoming friends with Angeline. (Which is still really, really strange.) Jamie can suddenly and inexplicably understand the weirdest and most mysterious creatures around: Boys.

And there's only one logical explanation --- superpowers.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Amanda Ledbetter
Step into the pages of Jamie Kelly's diary, unless her threat to use her superpowers against you is too frightening to bear. Within the pages of this eleventh book in the "Dear Dumb Diary" series, readers who are brave enough to dare ignore Jamie's warnings explore the mind and thoughts of a typical middle school girl. A young boy's bite transforms Jamie's DNA, according to her best friend Isabella, and she begins showing signs of "Being Like a Boy" superpowers. At least, that story explains how a rather uncoordinated girl like Jamie is now able to swiftly and nimbly kick Isabella in the face. This kick, along with a realization that she is gaining an understanding of how boys think, feel, and talk, makes Jamie believe these superpowers may be real. With her vivid imagination working overtime, Jamie tries to gain better control over her newfound powers while preparing to beat Isabella in the bottle-toss game at the school's Fun Fair. And the stakes are high—the loser has to kiss yucky Mike Pinsetti. With roughly drawn, grayscale illustrations and short dated diary entries for chapters, this book reads quickly and is packed full of laughs. Reviewer: Amanda Ledbetter

This book is hilarious and my daughter loves every bit of it. I read the book at work and laughed during a meeting. My coworkers read it too and loved it so much that i bought them books for Christmas and they bought books for their daughter and sons AND other relatives. This book helped me and my daughter get closer and it also brought more joy to my life and this book did it for me
