3 Questions for Jamie Kelly

Posted by at 6:12 am in Dear Dumb Diary, Reads | Permalink

0439629047_2I’d love to meet Jamie Kelly, whose secret journal has been published as the Dear Dumb Diary series (just don’t tell her that!). Jamie seems hilarious and I think we’d have a fun time together, so instead of asking her questions, I’d want to spend time actually hanging out. But I did come up with three requests to ask of Jamie if we could plan to meet up:

1. Please give me a make-over. (I’m dying to see how my hair would turn out!)

2. Let’s go out dancing!

3. Rate me on your popularity-o-meter! (Hopefully, I wouldn’t fall under Isabella’s metric system of Dorkology.)

What would YOU ask Jamie if you got the chance?

    I love the Dear Dumb Diary Series. I just recently started reading them, and I really love it. The first Dear Dumb Diary Book I read was:
    Dear Dumb Diary,
    The Problem With Here is that Where its From.
    That was a really, REALLY good book.
    I started it at my Friend’s house and she had gotten it from the library and I started reading it and I COULD NOT put it down it was such a good book. It took not so long but pretty long for me to finish it. Because I am a fast reader and finish like Diary of a Wimpy Kids in like, half and hour, I considered it long when I read the Dear Dumb Diary books.
    Overall, they are very good books!!!! :-)

    My sister got one and I read it, and I thought it was great. So I found a copy of the Spanish version I got 3 years ago and read that too. Now I’m addicted! In fifth grade, I could totally relate to Jamie and her feeling toward Angeline. Instead of hating the ‘popular’ kids I hung out with them to seem all cool and popular.
