Katie, who just turned 12 and who just moved to Texas from New
York City in 1948, gets a green diary (hence the title) from her
close friend in NYC, Mrs. Leitstein. Through journal entries,
drawings, and letters, Katie describes with great humor the trials
and tribulations of being age 12, such as having to wear lipstick
in order to get invited to a party, her very active twin baby
brothers, her stepfather's business, plus having to tutor Rudy, an
Italian immigrant who speaks very little English

I read this book during my vacation while I was missing out Gema's Birthday party. I was truly sad I couldn't go but I did have to go. I was going out of town to a hotspring place which was really cool because we had a jacuzzie in our hotel! But Anyways, they had a library there where you can read books during your stay and I finished this book during my stay (2 days) It's really good

I thought this was a cute and short book. I really enjoyed reading it. I thought it was a great sequel to "The Private Notebook of Katie Roberts Age 11". I remember reading it as a kid and fell in love with it. It was great to re-read it. I wish there was another one on what happened to her when she got older

I LOVE THIS BOOK! this book was the reason i began to read and most of all i was 12 so i felt has katie trying to look pretty and expermenting with bit of makeup and all the big issues of being a 12 year old girl.......i believe every young girl MUST read this book mostly if your 12 or turning u will not feel alone and have someone who understands u:)

I read this as a kid and remember loving it.
It was a quick read. Written in a personal narrative of journal entries from a twelve year old girls perspective.

About a 12 year in the 1940's. This is her diary of life events. I would say this book is a good little book. Quick to read.

A childhood favorite (as well as the prequel :P) and was one of the books that really turned me into a reader. My battered copies are still cherished pieces and sit proudly on my shelf.
