I LOVEEEE this book so so so so so much!!!!!!

um I'm sorry I am NOT a fan of this book. it's just not for me. pls don't say in the comments that I'm being rude by saying I don't like the book, because I'm not. It's just my opinion.

I read this a long time ago, but it was really good

The Dork Diaries is an amazing series! If you liked this book, you should definitely read the rest of the books!

OMG, I LOVE the Dork Diary series! I’ve read all of the books, and they’re one of my favorite series! It’s about a dorky girl named Nikki who goes through middle school. She experiences a lot of drama and heartbreak. I think the book series are great for people who like dramedy (drama + comedy)!

Chase I'm a dork and I think it gives me inspiration🤗

I'm just bot this one . I love to read this book.

The book was kinda relatable but not really at the same time. It was really good. Too bad I started reading the series toward the end of primary. Now im too old and cant borrow those books cuz im in sedondary. My main point - READ IT CUZ FUNNY!

It was SOO good for the first book I wonder what will be in all the others and if they will be the same good or better!

Okay. There's a lot to say here. I got this book at the library cuz I wanted something new to read, and this seemed interesting. I was SO wrong. So the girl, nikki, is like REALLY dramatic and is always like, OMG this, OMG that. OmgOmgOmg!!!! Unless you like all that weird stuff, I don't recommend you reading this. The art is okay, though. But otherwise, sorry if you were gonna read this, but..... yeah. I think I've said enough.
