Dork Diaries follows eighth grader Nikki Maxwell as she chronicles through text and sketches her move to a snooty new school; her epic battle with her mom for an iPhone; her enthusiasm for drawing and art; and a love/hate fascination with the new school's queen bee, a girl named Mackenzie, who becomes Nikki's rival in a schoolwide art competition. Nikki writes about friendships, crushes, popularity, and family with a unique and fresh voice that still conveys a universal authenticity. Nikki's sketches throughout her diary add humor and spunk to the book, a surefire hit with tween girl readers.

Part of the ever popular series, this sequel follows the adventures of Nikki Maxwell as she figures out the inner workings of middle school. I recently decided to reread this book to see if it was really was as good as I remembered when I was younger. Surprisingly, I wasn't disappointed. Reading this book at a young age, I think what was really appealing was the relatability of Nikki as a character. You really feel like your just reading her diary, and looking at it now you can almost hear the voice of a slightly insecure middle schooler writing out her doubts and fears of the world. Some may say the troupe of having a shy "dork' protagonist with an evil school rival seems cliché, but the way Nikki voices herself makes her really appealing. Not to mention, the plot of the book is written in a frustrating and emotional rollercoaster that's very visualizing and almost plays out as if I were watching a TV show. The comics also add that layer to the book. 4 Stars

This book was even better than the first one. I loved the drama and never knew what would happen next. The drama, comedy, and romance just perfect. I want more! ( so I guess you know what I'll be reading next)

the book is probably best for ages 9 or 10 because reading this for me was a bit boring also i cringed really bad when she said one of the best parts in her party was when everyone was dabbing and doing cool fortnite dances, like the floss, hype, and orange justice!

I just love this book. The illustrations can explain everything. This book is soo funny too. Though Nikki can scare me when she says things way out of hand then she says, "But I just said it in my head, so no else heard it but me." That is one of my favourite sayings in the entire Dork Diaries series. Love how the author/illustrator changed the design of the characters as the series of the books increased.

Nikki overhears mean girl MacKenzie bragging that Brandon's going to take her to the Halloween dance and they're dressing as Edward and Bella, a bummed Nikki signs on to spend Halloween at a kids' party for her little sister, Brianna. It's only after Nikki makes the commitment that she finds out MacKenzie was lying and Nikki's dream of going to the party with Brandon could be a reality. Now she's got two parties to juggle, plus plenty of other trials and tribulations along the way, ranging from creating a fairy repellent spray to ease Brianna's ongoing fear of the tooth fairy to trying to stifle a nasty case of the hiccups at her dad's ex-boss's funeral.
