A paper time machine of secretsReviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 December 2015
This is one of those books that you're sad to finish. The charm of childish concerns and dreams is so strong, especially when you find one or two that tie in with your own. There's also much fun to be had giggling at the sheer weirdness in this book. It's a paper time machine which toots its horn and offers you secrets and a ride to an earlier you that you may have forgotten.

glimmers of greatnessReviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 February 2012
i must admit, i thought this book would be better than it was. granted, there were a couple of glimmers of greatness within these pages, like the girl being judged on her cotton-judging abilities and the fantastically eloquent young lady who dreaded black history month, but for the most part i found a lot of the journals a little dull. judging from the 'where are they now' section at the end of the book, it seems that a disproportionate number of the diary authors live close to one another and do similar sorts of jobs, leading me to wonder if maybe they are largely people who knew each other before the book was put together. if i'm correct, this isn't a terrible tragedy, but i do wonder if the selection of diary entries couldn't have been improved by throwing the net a little wider. all in all a great concept, and the book was worth buying for the sheer voyeuristic thrill, but as with most voyeurism there is an awful lot of not-much-happening for the few moments when you get to see something really good.

never received my purchase. Hope they enjoyed the free money.
Hi-lar-i-ousReviewed in the United States on 9 April 2009
This is a MUST read if only for "The Porn", which is quite possibly the most insanely funny thing I have ever read. I laughed and laughed until I cried and got a stomachache. My boyfriend and I were shrieking with laughter. The other one I loved was the kid whose brother planted a fake essay in his homework that the kid actually gave to the teacher. The essay was so foul and full of swear words and all the teacher wrote was "This seems rushed." There is NO WAY the teacher read it. I was laughing/crying over that one too. I'm scared to go look at my journals after reading this because I'm sure they are exactly the same as these kids.

Decent book, but not what I expected.Reviewed in the United States on 13 March 2013
When I read about this book, I thought it would be more funny than it actually was. The idea of peeking into someone's life and looking at their embarrassing moments or thoughts can be really entertaining, as it can make you identify with the writer or see parallels with yourself. But, this seemed more about coming of age than anything else. Most of the entries in it weren't all that funny, and I guess you have to be the person writing it to find it humorous, but that's ok. It was still a decent read, and I don't regret buying it.
