The #1 New York Times bestselling (mostly true) memoir from the hilarious author of Furiously Happy. “Gaspingly funny and wonderfully inappropriate.”—O, The Oprah Magazine When Jenny Lawson was little, all she ever wanted was to fit in. That dream was cut short by her fantastically unbalanced father and a morbidly eccentric childhood. It did, however, open up an opportunity for Lawson to find the humor in the strange shame-spiral that is her life, and we are all the better for it. In the irreverent Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson’s long-suffering husband and sweet daughter help her uncover the surprising discovery that the most terribly human moments—the ones we want to pretend never happened—are the very same moments that make us the people we are today. For every intellectual misfit who thought they were the only ones to think the things that Lawson dares to say out loud, this is a poignant and hysterical look at the dark, disturbing, yet wonderful moments of our lives.

The (nearly) true confessions of Jamie Kelly. Dear whoever is Reading My Dumb Diary Are you sure you're supposed to be reading someone else's diary? Maybe I told you that you could, so that's OK. But if you are Angeline, I did NOT give you permission, so stop it. Dear Dumb Diary, School was OK today. Angeline got her hair tangled up in one of the jillion things she has dangling from her backpack, and the school nurse - who is now one of my main heroes - snipped half a metre of silky blonde hair from the left side of her head, so now Angeline only looks like The Prettiest Girl in the World if you're standing on her right.

Sample Book Insights: #1 Most people have never stood inside a dead animal, unless you count when Luke Skywalker crawled inside a tauntaun to keep from freezing to death in Star Wars. The only thing that seemed strange about the Cosby family's dinner preparations was that no one was covered in blood. #2 I had to throw up in a deer sweater. It was like I was wearing a deer sweater. I can’t eat any meat that I’ve seen or smelled raw, which my husband complains about all the time. #3 Most people do not have poisonous tap water in their house. Most people do not get letters from the government telling them not to drink their poisonous tap water because dangerous radon has leaked into their well. #4 Cisterns are large metal cans that catch rainwater, and most people don’t have them. Some people claim they have a cistern, but then politely add that the word is actually pronounced sister.

The hilarious and bestselling series from Jim Benton continues! It's not easy being a middle-schooler, and nobody knows that better than Jamie Kelly. There are surprises around every corner: some good, some bad, all dumb. But when Jamie inherits a trunk of her grandmother's things, she never expects to find the biggest surprise of all -- Grandma's diary. Violating the privacy of a diary is something Jamie would never do . . . unless she was absolutely certain that she wanted to do it. And when she does, she learns that, deep down, everyone is exactly the same. Dumb. Jamie still has no idea that anyone is reading her diary, so please, please, please don't tell her. And definitely don't tell her that she's the star of her very own Dear Dumb Diary movie, available on DVD. (Her glamorous ego might not be able to handle it.)

There are more than 5 million Dear Dumb Diary books in print!Bestselling author Jamie Kelly is back with an all-new, all-funny diary! But she has no idea that anybody is reading it. So please, please, please don't tell her.Dear Dumb Diary, I went five whole days without seeing or hearing from Angeline. I was beginning to get used to it. It's true that I have learned to overlook many of Angeline's flaws, like her flawlessness, but she can still be difficult to be around. Like when she's lit perfectly, for example. To my extreme credit, I have learned to pretend to ignore Angeline's failure to not be perfect.
