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

More (nearly) true confessions from the diaries of Jamie Kelly.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. Fantastic black and white cartoons throughout.
