Dear Dumb Diary: Never Do Anything, Ever by Jim Benton


Dear Dumb Diary: Never Do Anything, Ever by Jim Benton

This title presents more (nearly) true confessions from the diaries of Jamie Kelly. This is a hilarious middle-schooler's diary about her stinky beagle, mad best friend, disgustingly lovely rival and unrequited crush on the eighth-best-looking boy in the class. It's Wimpy Kid with a girl central character. There are fantastic black and white cartoons throughout.

About the Author

Jim Benton is not a middle-school girl, but do not hold that against him. He is the bestselling author of the Dear Dumb Diary series and is also the creator of many licensed properties for kids - big and small. Jim Benton lives in Michigan with his spectacular wife and kids. They do not have a dog, and they especially do not have a vengeful beagle.
