Deep and Meaningful Diaries from Planet Janet

By Dyan Sheldon

From Dyan Sheldon, author of the best-selling Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, two hilarious diaries in one satisfying volume!

"The fast-paced, clever writing will keep teens eagerly reading and sharing passages with each other to the end." — Booklist "Funny dialogue and a wacky setting, while still delivering a smart story." — Kirkus Reviews With a Mad Cow for a mother, an eccentric psychotherapist for a father, and a dweeble for a brother, thank goodness sixteen-year-old Janet Foley Bandry can confide in her diary. After all, she needs someone to talk to about entering the Dark Phase of her life. With a year so full of TURMOIL AND SUFFERING, only a CREATIVE AND ARTISTIC SOUL (and one trusty diary) can keep Janet's planet from spinning out of orbit!

  • "Reads like a cross between Bridget Jones s Diary and The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, Aged 13 3/4," School Library Journal, USA.
  • "GINORMOUS fun," Booklist.
