Cute and Dorky

I loved it. Nikki is a dork and so are her friends. They always get into funny situations.


This book is relateable so it makes it easy to enjoy but its also funny and filled with drama with pictures! You will never want to put it down. 3 best friends go out and try to survie as dorks in middle school.



nikki and brianna rule

This was my favorite dork diaries book


This is the official first book of the hot series--dork diaries! Follow Nicki Maxwell in her journey trying to survive middle school without being a dork--espcially infront of MacKenzie and her crush--Brandon (I think that's his name) Anyways, this book deserves a 500 star! Girls would love this!

girls like it but...

I like the books but dont like the Mean girls however I realize it is a fact of life and may as well talk about it to empower those who need to be..

daughter likes it and uses book as an example in "mean" situations.

sooo funny

it really relates to the older youh and teens


love the series and love rachel renne russel

Dork Diaries #1

I love the first book SO much! it is super funny and I love the way Nikki's diarie is written, I love the little things she made up like CCP's. This is one of my favorite series and recommend this book to everyone who likes humor and middle school drama :)


I love the series. the books keep getting better as they go


Nikki Maxwell is having trouble adjusting to her new school, Westchester Country Day. No cellphone, no friends, and worst of all, Mackenzie Hollister. Oh yeah, and she is a dork. Mackenzie and her phony friends keep trying to get to Nikki, and sometimes they succeed. Nikki can't seem to find her place at her new school. She begins to wish she had never gotten that dumb scholarship! But she learns that when you're down, you always rise back up.


this is the best book ever


Nikki is a huge dork but she doesn't let that stop her. This year, she has a locker next to the most popular and most snobby person in the school, Mackenzie.


in school she is in

what joy thinks

this book is super good and you should read it cause it'll make you laugh
