Dork Diaries: Tales From a Not-So-Popular Party Girl by Rachel Renée Russell

Reviewed by The Girl (age 11)

Dork Diaries: Tales From a Not-So-Popular Party Girl (book 2 in the Dork Diaries series) is about a girl named Nikki, who is facing middle school and has to deal with a mean girl, MacKenzie.  The book is Nikki’s diary for the month of October, with lined pages that look like real handwriting and drawings.  Nikki really, really wants Brandon (her crush) to ask her out to the Halloween dance.  But then she hears that Brandon is going to ask MacKenzie to the dance.  Things get out of control when Nikki has to deal with two events and planning the big dance.  Will Brandon go with MacKenzie?  Will the dance be a success?

This was an AWESOME book.  It starts off amazing, and it didn’t end like I expected it to.  It ends with excitement.  I think Nikki is a great character.  She’s funny, especially when she says things about MacKenzie in her head.  I know what it’s like to have a mean girl in my class, and I like to write in a journal, too.  I really like this series, though Diary of a Wimpy Kid is still my favorite of the diary books. I think you all should read this book!
