I really enjoyed this book from the Dork Diaries series. Its one of the first books i have read by the author and can not wait to read the next one.

I like the way the book is set out, It looks like a school book with the lines on the page and the pictures are FAB! (made me want to colour them in) and some of them very funny…. I think this adds to the reading of the book.


I like how each day has a diary entry from Nikki…..i sometimes felt like i had stolen her diary! I could imagine having her as a friend hehe i think she has a school life like any other kid (apart from the TV part) friend problems, embarrassing family and even boys!! (how gross is that!)


I liked that i could put this book down but easily get back into the story quickly when i started it again 🙂 Its a fun read and i think many of my friends would enjoy this.


I hope all of Rachel Renée Russell books are as easy to read as this one was and i hope to be able to read and review many more of hers in the future. I know my best friend would enjoy this so i will give this review copy to her 🙂

mini obc about the author

Rachel Renee Russell is an attorney who prefers writing tween books to legal briefs. (Mainly because books are a lot more fun and pyjamas and bunny slippers aren’t allowed in court.) She has raised two daughters and lived to tell about it. Her hobbies include growing purple flowers and doing totally useless crafts (like, for example, making a microwave oven out of Popsicle sticks, glue, and glitter). Rachel lives in northern Virginia with a spoiled pet Yorkie who terrorises her daily by climbing on top of a computer cabinet and pelting her with stuffed animals while she writes. And, yes, Rachel considers herself a total Dork. Dork Diaries site:
