Nikki Maxwell reminds me so much of myself at that age. I too had to find my place and voice in a new school and new neighborhood. Finding true friends can be tough. Talking to your crush is even tougher. I like the old school diary format. Nikki's drawings really show her talent as an artist and showcase her quirky personality. She gets into some spectacular scrapes that had me laughing out loud. Nikki can be whiny and annoying at times, especially with her obsession with the popular girl, MacKenzie, but who wasn't annoying at that age. I can see why these books are so popular with young girls. Nikki goes through a lot of the things that adolescents have to deal with, especially peer hazing. I appreciate how she comes out on top at the end, gives hope to all awkward pre-teens out there. Stick to your talents and your besties and you'll be alright.

I loved this book. At first I thought Dork Diaries was not going to be good, but after reading this book I was so wrong. Now I'm obsessed!!! with this series. I love Nikki I can so relate to her. The only reason I gave it 4 and a half stars was because the only thing I didn't like was the encouragement of people to get tattoos. Also, thank you Nikki for influencing me to write in a diary. I just love that girl! (see what I did there)
