Dear Dumb Diary #5: Can Adults Become Human

Series: Dear Dumb Diary (Book #5)
by Jim Benton Illustrated by Jim Benton

Jamie Kelly believes that life at Mackerel Middle School is looking up after Aunt Carol comes to work there. The mean office ladies are suddenly smiling and Jamie thinks it's because chocolate bars have replaced the butterscotch candies in the principal's office. When Assistant Principal Devon suddenly looks handsome and Angeline starts acting friendly to her, Jamie's life is about to get really weird!
