I read this book in about 15/20 minutes. I really enjoyed it. It is in a diary form and has good little pictures. It is about a girl called Phoebe who has who has issues at school and problems at home. She starts a diary in the hope it would be magic and help her. I thought this story had a good and funny ending. I would like to read the other books in the series.

Feely is a girl who thinks that nobody understand her. She descibes how rubbish her parents are, how stinky her brother is and describes how mean are girls who go to her school.  The book shows how the girl is stuggling with getting on well with people - and she actualy have a reason for that. I like the end of the story when she finally discovers how to cope with her problematic friends.
The whole story is written in a funny girly way with sarcasm and good humour. It's a great book for kids who stuggle with reading because it's rather short and not very complicated. The black and white illustration are lovely and show exactly what  Feely thinks when she writes her diary:) In the end of the story I had the feeling that I what to know something more about this girl so probably we will read some more about Feely's adventures.

I read this story to my year 2 class. Some found it funny while others found it a little confusing as the words were quite difficult to understand, such as 'codswallop'. I had to define what this meant in a more child friendly way but I find this with many books. I think it is much more suited to children about 8-9. They are all of a high reading ability however their understanding of more mature words isn't always secure.
I personally enjoyed the story and from a teaching point of view felt it was a great book to tackle issues like bullying and persistent upset at school.
I love the layout of the book as if it were an actual diary and think it would be beneficial to use during lessons to help with writing a diary extract, using examples of texts to demonstrate the content and features of a diary entry. The book details the life of a young secondary school girl who is struggling with a few worries about name calling at school. The diary is her greatest confidant and she confides all of her troubles to the 'Magic Diary'. She truly believes the diary has helped her to overcome the name calling. It shows the girls innocence and how she didn't feel alone when she shared her worries. 'A problem shared is a problem halved' springs to mind as she instantly felt relieved and had a weight lifted off her shoulders as soon as she'd shared her daily occurrences with the diary. The length of the book encourages children to want to read as it is easily achievable because it has only 56 pages in the entire book. The children enjoyed the selection of other titles in the series that were printed into the back of the book because it gave them an idea of what else would happen in Feely's adventures and wether or not they'd like to read them judging by the title and cover.
Lewis aged 7: I liked that the boy read the diary and helped her sort the mean girl out.
Edgar aged 6: I loved the book! especially the bit where the bad girl got laughed at because it served her right. I'm looking forward to Feely and Henry VIII because I like history.
Isobel aged 7: I liked the book because I liked that it was a diary and I thought it was funny when Miss Rosy said Finella, That was a nice word.
Emily aged 6: I liked this book because it's got some good information in.
Lily aged 7: My favourite part was when the 'Pink click' got punished because they were always mean to the other children, especially Feely.
Jude aged 7: I liked it when they said her pants had fallen down because she was mean to Feely.

I really enjoyed this book, it was quite short so I read it in one go. It is a diary and I like the way the writting is before it looks like shes has written it herself. I didnt think the cover looked that good but enjoyed the story. I felt sad for feely as she had nasty people in her class but at the end of the story she was better at getting on with her classmates.

Feely has quite a tough life: She has to put up with the horrible "Pink Click" girls at school, and her parents and brother are just no help, so she has nobody she can really rely on. 
I enjoyed reading this book, but it was far too short for me. I think it is much more suitable for younger children, probably around the age of 5 to 7. There is not a lot of action in this book, so I did find it slightly boring. 
Definitely more suitable for much younger readers.
