The (nearly) true confessions of Jamie Kelly.
Dear whoever is reading My Dumb Diary
Are you sure you're supposed to be reading someone else's diary? Maybe I told you that you could, so that's OK. But if you are Angeline, I did NOT give you permission, so stop it.
Dear Dumb Diary,
School was OK today. Angeline got her hair tangled up in one of the jillion things she has dangling from her backpack, and the school nurse - who is now one of my main heroes - snipped half a metre of silky blonde hair from the left side of her head, so now Angeline only looks like The Prettiest Girl in the World if you're standing on her right.
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.
