Dork Diaries by Rachel Renee Russell New York: Aladdin, 2009.
Did you love Diary of a Wimpy Kid? If you did you will certainly love this one too! Only difference—this is this is definitely a “chic book”! Girl drama from start to finish! Meet Nikki Maxwell, an eighth grader, starting at a brand new school and trying to fit in—fit in anywhere! The new school has a very mean girl, MacKenzie, who is the most popular girl in 8th grade and whose locker is right next to Nikki’s. MacKenzie is making Nikki’s life miserable just because she is a little different, dorky. The theme of friendship and what girls will do to fit in is very well written and illustrated by author, Rachel Renee Russell. Best part—this book makes me laugh!
