Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Following a remarkable run in its singular hardcover format (over 20,000 copies in print after two printings) and having captured a devoted fan base that continues to grow, Dear Diary arrives in trade paperback.

Within only several months of its release, this highly acclaimed title reached thousands of readers who sparked enthusiastic discussions on MySpace Books, was covered exhaustively on teen and literary blogs alike, and repeatedly hit the top of numerous must-read lists at Amazon. With glowing reviews from national publications like Jane and Paper magazines, who have generated an electrifying buzz with praise of its unique sensibility and sincerity, Dear Diary is undoubtedly on its way to becoming a teen classic in the vein of Go Ask Alice and The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Synopsis:

Dear Diary collects Vice columnist Lesley Arfin's funniest diary entries from 12 to 25 years old. She updates each entry by tracking down the people involved and asking awkward questions like, Do you remember when I tried to beat you up? Sometimes old friends apologize. Sometimes they become new enemies. No matter who she talks to about the days we all discovered sex, drugs, and rock'n roll, one thing becomes abundantly clear: Boys are totally immature.
