Sometimes you just have to read something nonsensical. This book fills the bill. It was much better then I expected. I can see why these are popular with pre teens and teens. ( )

Quick, fun read, perfect for kids who might need a de-stressing break from school right now. ( )

I can't stand this mean, entitled little punk. I'm actually glad these will circulate on their own because I'm really not sure I could recommend them myself. Ick. Yeah, yeah, target audience, something something real life middle school, but I just can't get past the horrible narrator. ( )

First words
Em primeiro lugar, quero esclarecer uma coisa: isto é um LIVRO DE MEMÓRIAS, não um diário.
First of all, let me get something straight: This is a JOURNAL, not a diary.
Let me just say for the record that I think middle school is the dumbest idea ever invented. You got kids like me who haven't hit their growth spurt yet mixed in with these gorillas who need to shave twice a day. And then they wonder why bullying is such a big problem in middle school.
