Nikki Maxwell’s favorite fairy tales get dork-tastic twists in the eighth book of the #1 New York Times bestselling Dork Diaries series!

After a bump on the head in gym class on April Fool’s Day, Nikki has a wild dream in which she, her BFFs Chloe and Zoey, her crush Brandon, and mean girl Mackenzie all end up playing the roles of some familiar classic fairy tale characters. Of course, the stories don’t go quite as expected—because they each have a very special Dork Diaries spin!

The Dork Diaries series has more than 13 million copies in print worldwide!

            This book is about a girl called nikki getting hit by a ball during gym class and now she is in fairy tale land .she is stuck in fairy tale land .I think her favorite story she has been in is cinderella because her crush brandon was in it and because he was so nice to her and he was about to kiss nikki but it was allmost midnight so she had to run because her spell would not work anymore so she run then she was hidding until morning so she could go to the queen of hearts castel to look for the wizard of odd so she could go back home but when she got there she saw that the wizard of odd was FAKE!!! she was so sad because she thought she would be stuck in fairy tale land for ever but then brianna said she would try to get nikki back home nikki thought that brianna could not bring her back home because to bring nikki back they need very powerful magic but brianna said she has read alot about bringing people back so brianna tried a spell but it didny work so brianna got mad at her wand and she hit it and the star of the wand hit nikki and brought her back home then mackenzie was sent to the office to get detention for hitting nikki in the face so she had to clean the girls shower which had alot of BUGS!!! so when she got home she got a letter from her little sister brianna.
