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

Dear Dumb Diary is a hilarious hit! Now after twelve 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 more of 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.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Book I Like this book a lot, it kind of helps me prepare a little bit more for high school and I know how its like from someone else's perspective. Even though this book doesn't exactly have a real story behind it, it lets you know what's on a teenagers mind these days. The book has a lot of funny scenes, and it has a lot of scenes where Teen/pre-teen can relate in life. It also relates to school, about how Jamie starts to fail a class (trying not to spoil anything for somebody who hasn't read the book yet) and gets jealous of somebody else for being smart, as Jamie tries to raise her grade up to prove to people that she is smart. Sometimes I think Jamie is a bit full of herself, thinking she's pretty and smart, I'm not saying that she isn't. I think the author is trying to send a message to people in school right now, helping them get through, and it has helped a lot. Overall I would this book 5 stars and I would recommend this book to a friend if they needed advice or a laugh after a bad day

Extra Content

Read from the Book

From Dear Dumb Diary Year Two #1: School. Hasn't This Gone on Long Enough? Dear Whoever Is Reading My Dumb Diary, Stop it. I know you're hoping to read my diary and find out what it is about me that makes me so awesome. And you probably want to steal my beauty secrets, like how not trying to be beautiful all the time makes me beautifuller. Or maybe you're hoping to get a glimpse of my supersecret art secrets, like how I make glitter stick to things. (Okay, maybe that one is not that secret, but I do have other things about me that are way greater than they need to be.) "Way Greater Than She Needs To Be." I'm getting older now, and I need to think about the future. So I officially authorize that saying to be engraved on the first twenty large statues people create of me. After that, they can choose other super-complimentary things. Frequent use of the word "cute" is also authorized, although I really prefer "kewt." (It's kewter.) Also, parents, if you're reading this, stop reading my diary now. I know I'm not supposed to point out other people's flaws, but I didn't actually point them out, I only wrote them out. And if you punish me for it, I'll know that you read my diary. Not only am I not giving you permission to do that, it will just prove how much less awesome you are than me. Signed, Jamie Kelly
