Let's Pretend This Never Happened Dear Dumb Diary #1Read the hilarious candid and sometimes not so nice diaries of Jamie Kelly who promises that everything in her diary is trueor at least as true as it needs to beSchool was okay today Actually it was better than okay. Agreed Let's totally pretend this never happened Because frankly this book kind of scared meI've started a project where I'm trying to read through the titles that are currently housed in my tiny library at which I work I figured starting with the Children's Series section would be an easy uick read and I would get some good titles for reader's advisory under my belt Dear Dumb Diary seemed like a good place to start with it's high circulation and funny sounding premiseAnd at times it is funny A line that made me laugh out loud Friends tell friends they're wearing antipersperant on their mouths Our middle school narrator Jamie Kelly is painstakingly so very painstakingly honest in descriptions of the people in her life Which is refreshing I'm all for female characters who don't fit into the nice girl mold But I do believe at least by the end of the story the character should reveal or obtain some redeeming uality And poor Jamie Kelly has none And remember how I said above that it kinda scared me Here's why there are some spoilers1Jamie has an obsessive preoccupation with a classmate Angeline whom she claims to despise To the point that she steals a chunk of her shorn hair and carries it around in her backpack Uh what now She also purposefully gets in trouble to steal Angeline's permanent file to get dirt on her and not in a we are gonna solve a mystery way Hmmm Not necessarily the kind of heroine I'd want a child identifying with2A character has a severe allergic reaction and instead of getting medical help she's old enough to know better she's in middle school she pretends he's a prop for her school assignment3She learns nothing and does not change by the end of the book Then what was the pointAnd I guess the point could be to make a tween girl laugh for a bit please please please don't let your little ones read this have someone with which she can identify if she is a snarky little brat or kill an hour with reading instead of watching tv So it could be worse I guess

Angeline got her long beautiful hair tangled in one of the jillion things she has dangling from her backpack and the school nurse who is now one of my main heroes took a pair of scissors and snipped two feet of silky. MY OPINION This book is pretty nice for me because Jamie seems to be a crazy girl this book also makes you laugh D SUMMARYJamie Kelly is a girl that has a diary and she writes crazy stuff about people and makes some drawings not really just the author LOLJamie's ualities are clever Jamie's hair dye name is GroundhogHer eye color is green and her crush is called Hudson Rivers Her bff is called Isabella Angeline is a clever girl tooshe has a nice hair Her hair's name is Golden Heavenly Sunshine Jamie is obviously jelous about thatThe conflict is ANGELINE she doesnt let JAMIE get into Hudson JAmie REAALLYYYY likes HUdson but Angelines beauty is too much Rachel
