        Dork Diaries is a hilarious girl tween book! It’s very funny and is realistic: Nikki has 2 besties, 1 enemy, and a whole team of great band members! From a hilarious diary entry style! Read it, it’s my second favorite book series!

              This book is about a normal teenage girl going through her high school year but there is always that one popular, rich girl trying to ruin her life. Nicky Maxwell (the normal teenager) has a crush on the same guy Mackenzie Hollister (the queen of the school) has a crush on. Brandon (both of their crushes) has a crush on Nicky. That is probably why Mackenzie is secretly jealous of Nicky.
