The Diary of Janie Ray, Books 1-5: Box Set! Publisher's Summary

Hi! My name is Janie Ray, and I'm 11 years old. When I first got this diary from my mom, I didn't think I'd have all that much to write about. I mean, let's face it - fifth grade isn't exactly the most exciting thing in the world. 

But then really strange things started happening. Like last week, my best friend Sheila and I were hanging out in our clubhouse, drinking lemonade and trying to figure out what to do about Marcia the Snob (who literally thinks she's queen of the fifth grade and seems to specialize in making my life miserable...), when we suddenly noticed a weird inscription on this old medallion I found when I was little. The crazy part is, it was written in a secret code Sheila and I made up for our clubhouse JUST THIS YEAR! At first, we figured someone was playing some kind of a trick on us. But then, before we realized what was happening, we ended up in the forest with an exceedingly odd girl who kept insisting the year was 1739. 

Let's just say my life isn't so boring anymore. And that's an understatement.

This audiobook includes the first five adventures of The Diary of Janie Ray!

The Impossible Medallion and The Day My Mom Got Grounded: Eleven-year-old Janie Ray can't believe it's only been a few weeks since she first discovered the mysterious inscription on her old medallion. But things have already started changing. For the better.

A Star is Born: Kellie Allen is the most unpopular girl in Janie Ray's fifth grade class. She doesn't have any friends, and she brings sardine sandwiches for lunch! Janie can't believe her rotten luck when she gets stuck with Kellie as her science project partner. But she soon realizes that Kellie isn't as weird as she seems. And she has the best singing voice Janie has ever heard! 

A Letter to my Fifth Grade Self: Things are going pretty well for Janie. Between hanging out with Sheila, Kellie, and Alexis and trying to get her homework done, she barely has time to think about the medallion. And even MTS - otherwise known as Marcia the Snob - seems to be minding her own business. 

Baking with Frenemies: Travelling through time is strange enough, but now something even stranger has happened - MTS wants to be Janie's friend! Or does she?
