Dork Diaries: Tales from a Not-So-Fabulous Life
New school. New mean girl. New crush. New diary so Nikki can spill about all of it...

The Dork Diaries follows young Nikki Maxwell, who 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 & art; and a love/hate fascination with the new school's queen bee, a girl named Mackenzie who becomes Nikki's rival in a school-wide art competition.

The book was sort of a wake up call for me. I can't believe the things kids worry about now. However, some things remain the same: popularity, fitting in and of course boys. The book reminds me of the movie Mean Girls but with a middle school twist to it. There may very well be a Nikki in most of us girls at one point or another. The funny part about this review is once again my son snagged this book and read it before I did. I would have been more comfortable reading it before him. The art work in the book is hands down amazing. It has that anime look to it. My son and I have talked about the book and he thought it was funny. He didn't focus on the parts that I thought he would. He was cracking up about the big roach on Nikki's dad's work van and her little sister's fear of the tooth fairy. I think the book caught his eye because of the artwork. The cover is similar to the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. On that note, as a winner please read the book first before handing it over to determine for yourself if it is an appropriate read for that young girl you plan to give it to.
