Dear Diary

Dear Diary, I can’t figure out why Kathi hates Mr. P so much. If you ask me, he’s the coolest teacher at Brookdale. How could you not like a teacher who wears Converse sneakers to school?! I have no idea why Landon goes out with her—and I’m not just saying that because I have a […]

Dear Diary

Dear Diary, Guess what? I sang “Umbrella” at Marcus’s party in front of EVERYONE! I was nervous for the first few lines, but after that I relaxed by imagining everyone in their underwear (which is something I saw on a TV show once).  People seemed to be really impressed—even Landon came up to me afterward! […]

Dear Diary

Bonjour Diary, I sure bet you’re glad you’re made out of recycled paper, huh? Otherwise, you’d be pretty ashamed right now! Today in class, Ms. Merriweather was telling us how there was a time when people just threw their garbage and bottles and newspapers all in the same trash bag! My mom still has to […]

Dear Diary

Dear Diary, I was thinking today how brave Chloe and Jasper are—leaving behind all their friends to move to a new city (in Jasper’s case—a new COUNTRY!). I think it would be really scary, but for someone like me who’s been with the same kids since preschool, it sounds exciting, too. I’d consider moving if I could bring […]

Dear Diary

Dear Diary, Obviously I miss Ally more than anything, but the good news is I made a new friend at the pool today!  His name is Jasper Chapman and he just moved here from London, England. (What’s up with all these people moving to other countries?)  He may dress weird (can you imagine not owning […]

Dear Diary

Dear Diary, If I have to write a “How I Spent My Summer Vacation” essay it will only be one sentence: “I thought about Landon Beck and whether seventh grade would be the year he came to his senses and fell madly in love with me.”  I know he’s been on and off with Kathi […]

Dear Diary

Dear Diary. I know people usually make New Year’s Resolutions, but don’t you think Beginning-of-School-Year’s Resolutions make more sense? Here are mine: 1 – Win a spot on Teen Sing. 2 – Actually talk (instead of mumble) to Landon. 3 – Design my first line of fashion and accessories that, while totally hip and fabulous, […]

Dear Diary

Hi Diary, I got the most HORRIBLE news today – even worse than when I found out Kathi and Landon were going out. Ally is moving to Paris! As in France! As in another country! WHAT am I going to do?! I mean, yes, I’ll still have you to talk about all my deepest secrets […]
