This is the diary of a young girl, Marilou Latendresse. Here she shares all of her wishes, dreams, and secrets. Marilou writes who she likes, what makes her sad, what gives her joy, and what gives her courage.

Written especially for young girls, My Diary is filled with poems, illustrations, inventions, and personal musings on life and happiness. Parents and kids can read along and learn with Marilou as she explores her world and how she feels about her place in it.
