What's new, what's cool: Dear Dumb Diary'

"Dear Dumb Diary," by Jim Benton (Scholastic, $4.99).
___
Middle-schooler Jamie Kelly is mad. She's mad at Angeline, the most popular
and prettiest girl in the world (or at least in Mackerel Middle School).
Jamie is mad at the fact that she has to go to middle school in the first
place. She's mad at her disapproving parents, and mad at Hudson Rivers (the
eighth cutest guy in her grade) for not noticing her. Her only hope is to
console in her diary, the one place where she can spill her heart out and
draw pictures of how things really look.
"Dear Dumb Diary" (Scholastic, $4.99) by Jim Benton is a look at Jamie's
life in her own words. Her adventures include avoiding trouble (or getting
into it) with her partner in crime, Isabella; rating people on a "Loser"
scale; dealing with crazy cafeteria monitor Miss Bruntford; and observing
and caring for her dog Stinker.
You'll laugh out loud at what this girl has to say.

From Our Editors The Barnes & Noble Review
The hilarious author of the Franny K. Stein, Mad Scientist books zaps fans with another new series, this time about a girl braving the trials and tribulations of middle school. Told in knee-slapping diary entries, the first installment of Jamie Kelly's tales begins as "the worst thing that can happen to you in middle school" almost occurs: getting a nasty nickname (for all of you uneducated souls out there). From there, Jamie goes on to describe a schoolmate's misfortune of using ChocoMint lip smacker; her interest in almost-hunk boy Hudson Rivers; and most of all her unkind feelings toward Angeline, a pretty blonde girl who Jamie's sure is "scorpion-like" beneath her sweet exterior. But when a mysterious culprit smacks the school's cafeteria monitor in her "neck blubber" with meatloaf, Jamie takes the heat and winds up almost-pals with Angeline. Jim Benton delivers a wonderfully silly series that combines his knack for knowing what kids love to read with fun illustrations. Young audiences will eat up Jamie's diary descriptions of stealing Angeline's hair out of the wastebasket, her "glazed" cousin, and just about every other crazy event that happens, while parents are sure to see their kids beg for more Dumb Diary books. As the subtitle suggests, we can pretend this never happened, but in reality we're sure happy it did. Shana Taylor

A great book that makes you constantly want to read more! This is definitely one of my favourite books ever!! I'm normally quite picky with books but this one was definitely worth a 5-star rating!!! The main character is always talking to her diary but it really feels like she talking to you (the reader). My teacher also said that they've helped me to improve in my writing because I've picked up on some of her brilliant use of vocabulary!! LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH!!!

I love this book series jamie is a average middle school girl with a big imagination. shd has a best friend called isabella who is quite a bully because of her mean older brothers. Their enemy is a beauty queen called angeline who is the most popular and pretty girl of the school. jamie on the other hand hates her because of all of the attention she gets. jamies crush is a guy called hudson (8th cutest in her grade) but angeline uses her beauty to win him over find out what happens in the book series

I read this book first instead of second but you still get the drift of all the things that are happening in it. It is such a great book and it only took me two days to read. this book is like no other with illustrations just like you were actually readin someones diary and all the settings in the book you have the school at home the mall. It really does show you all the things children are going through boys friends having the best of clothes it was such a great book to read and quick and understand and the illustations are so funny recommended because it is great And every one will love i cant wait to read the other books and find out what trouble she will get into this time.

Love, Love, Love it! Really funny and always makes me laugh. I just wish that they would sell the rest of the books for Kindles, because I can't seem to find them anywhere.

A fabulous story that feels so real and and suspiciously feels as if it's based on experience. A must read if you lineages core school reality!
