About the Book
True Story! . . . These pages from EJ Payne’s diary will have you ROTFL as you witness her spunky personality and well-meant-but-often-misunderstood antics. You’ll fall in love with this first release in the Diary of a Real Payne series as EJ records her thoughts and feelings about living in little old Spooner, Wisconsin (snooze!), eventually leaving her hometown to do big things when she’s all grown up (oh glorious day!), and having to star in the role of lead angel in the Vine Street Christmas pageant (are you kidding me?). This colossal-fun series is overflowing with humor and memorable life lessons.

About the Author
Annie Tipton made up her first story at the ripe old age of two when she asked her mom to write it down for her. (Hey, she was just two—she didn't know how to make letters yet!) Since then she has read and written many words as a student, newspaper reporter, author, and editor. Annie loves snow (which is a good thing because she lives in Ohio), wearing scarves, sushi, Scrabble, and spending time with friends and family.

My Take on the Book
This was a fun book for any young reader. Set up like a diary you will get lost in the pages and find yourself laughing in many spots at the big ideas that EJ (the main character has) as well as how she deals with what is thrown at her on a daily basis. I loved the characters in the book and the author has done a great job creating a book and a literary environment that draws you in from the beginning. This book was one that my daughter and I loved to read and I found that I felt that we were done reading this almost before we started! We cannot wait for the next book in the series!
