The Dear Dumb Diary: Utterly Magnificent Boxed Set comes with more than just two great books from the Dear Dumb Diary series by author Jim Benton for you to read. It also includes a journal that’s packed with fun fill-ins and quizzes for you and your friends!


The Books

All Jamie Kelly wants for Christmas is for people to STOP READING HER DIARIES! But where’s the fun in that? Instead, see where the bestselling Dear Dumb Diary series all began with this brand-new boxed set, just in time for the holidays! Inside the special fold-out box, you’ll find Jamie’s first two diaries … here’s a sneak peek at one of her entries …


Dear Dumb Diary,

Tonight at dinner, Mom announced that we're going to be taking care of my little cousin in a few weeks. He's like, my aunt's daughter's brother's nephew or something.
I know that your uncle's kids are your cousins, but then there are things like first cousins and second cousins and cousins once-removed. What does that mean? "Cousins once-removed."
I had a wart once removed.
And, Dumb Diary, just to update you on Mom's Latest Food Crime, last night she made a casserole with 147 ingredients, and it still tasted bad. It's hard to believe that out of 147 ingredients, not one of them tasted good.


Our Dumb Diary: A Journal To Share

Now you and your friends can write about the whole dumb world in your very own Our Dumb Diary: A Journal To Share! You can use this journal to compare how you think to how your friends think. For example, what are some of the ways you’ve grossed yourself out? If your crush sent you a love note what would it say? Would you rather get a makeover from the prettiest girl in school or give the prettiest girl in school a makeover?


Just fill in your answers to these deep, important questions (plus many more). Then pass the journal along to your friends so they can do the same – just make sure they are your BFFs! You wouldn’t want THIS diary getting into the wrong hands!


Journaling Tips

When writing in your diary, the most important thing is to share your real feelings. After all, if someone happens to read it, you would want them to be entertained, right?

i think the problem is just lack of understanding, and that we need to be taught to some extent about mental illnesses at school. depression - because its so common, but also the other mental illnesses that we don't hear about as often. a year ago, i confronted a friend about the possibility of me being depressed. i told this particular friend because we had a similar conversation the year before that. after i told her, she immediately responded with statements such as "you can't be because you seem so happy" and "try not to be". i think this stopped me from talking about it to any of my other friends since then, especially since some of them would make jokes about depression every once and a while.  i don't think any of my friends mean to be hurtful, its just they don't understand that depression is a serious illness that can't just go away. it effects you mentally, and physically. but people who treat and talk about depression in these ways only make it harder to seek help.
