Jamie Kelly documents events in her diary as she becomes dog-in-laws with her enemy, Angeline, her class's journal-writing assignment goes badly wrong, and her friend Isabella starts being nice to Angeline.

It's an eventful month for Jamie Kelly. Stinker and Stickybuns' litter of puppies has arrived -- which makes Jamie and her nemesis Angeline "in-laws by dog." Ugh.

Jamie's class at Mackerel Middle School is doing a unit on journal-writing, and someone's diary falls into the wrong hands.

But worst of all, Angeline and Isabella are becoming . . . friends.

Dear Dumb Diary,

It's not my fault I know everything.

Okay, I don't know where Timbuktu is, but I refuse to know that. Even if somebody told me, I would flush my brain like a thought-potty and wave goodbye to Timbuktu as it swirled down my brain hole.

I know everything that I WANT to know.

New York Times Bestselling author Jamie Kelly is back with another hilarious, candid, and sometimes not-so-nice diary!

Dear Dumb Diary,

I went back and read some of my very oldest diaries. The entries say things like "I eated salad dressing" and "I got a Barbie shoe stuck in Stinker's nose again" and "The vet was mean to me about the Barbie shoe so I tried to bite him but vets are quick at not getting bit because dogs try all the time but dogs don't usually kick so I did that."

What amazed me was just how dumb I used to be, considering how smart I am now. There must have been a day when I just woke up smart.

“I'm telling you, the gorgeous of the world can actually look pretty intimidating when they scowl. Imagine a snow-white swan with a scary tattoo holding a chain saw. There's just no way to really prepare for that.”

“Things Isabella Wouldn't Care About:
- Titanic sinking again.
- Metror striking Earth and landing directly on top of world's most innocent panda.

“I had the great idea of using markers to gently color the ants so I could tell them apart, but I learned that this is exactly like somebody trying to gently color on you with a thirty-story building.
Without dwelling on the tragedy, I'd just like to say that I'm deeply sorry to Mr. Purple and the surviving Purple family.”
