The Dirt Diary by Anna Staniszewski
The Dirt Diary has a lot of elements to it, such as family, bullying, honesty, and friendship. A lot of people can relate to her case. Rachel is a great character, and she developed a lot in the story, and we get to see a lot of different sides of her. I think I liked Evan the best. He is so sweet and nothing like his sister. I liked that often right after something bad happens, he is pretty much who she runs into next, and of course, embarrasses herself.
It was funny to hear her goofy swear words, like "gas cap!" and "holy fried onion rings!" Rachel has a habit of getting into bad situations, and they are almost always funny. It is completely original, and the perfect amount of everything. It can be hard to coordinate a book to work together, but the author pulled it off, and everything flows together nicely.
I really recommend this book. I am looking forward to reading the second and third books in the series.
