Nobody's Perfect. I'm as Close as It Gets.

Series: Dear Dumb Diary Year Two (Book #3)
by Jim Benton Illustrated by Jim Benton

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.)
