This book was a fun read, especially with interesting situations included in the novel! The story was written in a diary style, which I loved because it almost felt like I was reading my very own personal notebook. Everything about this book was hilarious and I found that I could almost relate to most of the situations that Amelia faced throughout the story. I believe that this book gives many tips and advice to deal with different problems you face at school, and I extremely enjoyed the fact that it was a quick read!
