Praise for DEAR DUMB DIARY:
"This series is so much fun -- hilarious and creative -- giving a voice to an average-seeming kid, who knows deep down that she is something special." --INDIGO KIDS "Benton has a gift for writing Jamie's voice exactly like the girl you'd want sitting next to you in class, whispering terrible comments." --KIDS BOOKS CENTRAL "Benton is a genius at expressing a believable preteen girl worldview without silly vernacular or dumbing down to his audience." --KIDSREADS.COM
