Dork Diaries is a hilarious and authentic portrayal of the ups and downs of middle school, finding friends who understand you, and finding yourself. Nikki is a witty, smart, and self-deprecating character that many young teens and preteens will be able to relate to, and her voice is especially compelling, despite her tendency to be a bit dramatic. The many drawings and the simple, straightforward writing style in Dork Diaries is certain to appeal to girls who don't normally read. Rachel Russell has created a fun, clever, and highly entertaining book that is sure to satisfy.
Cover Comments: I like the pink, and the sketch on the cover is just a sample of all the ones that can be found inside the book. The cover is similar to the popular series Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and I think they're trying to appeal to the females of that age. Cute cover!
And here is the cute trailer:
