    Dork Diaries Tales From a Not-So-Popular Party Girl is written by Rachel Renée Russell. I would recommend this book to the people that aren't popular at school or doesn't have a lot of friends because this book tells us to be confident and believe in yourself, don't be ashamed of yourself. I really like this book because McKenzie always tries to humiliate Nikki but it never works, in the end, Nikki always fixes everything and McKenzie would be very angry all the time. I think that McKenzie is jealous about Nikki because Brandon always talks to her. And when McKenzie asked Brandon to be her date, Brandon said no to her. The thing that made me really mad is that McKenzie canceled the Halloween Dance just because Brandon didn't agree to be her date ,instead, Brandon asked Nikki to be his date. Also, McKenzie purposely told her aunt that Nikki is very good at drawing and that she can help the little kid to draw their faces, and she bought Nikki a rat costume that was really stinky and dirty. But I'm really happy that Nikki cares about her friends so much that she didn't tell them the truth because she didn't want to hurt their hearts after what they saw their crushes did. And she also didn't tell Brandon that she was supposed to spend the night with her friends, Chloe and Zoey. But because she wanted to satisfy everyone at the same time, she had to run three places and change into three different costumes at the same time. Also, she had to make sure that non of them saw her at the same time. I found out that evil people never wins and kind people always has a happy ending. And I wish everyone could be like Nikki and have a happy ending like her's. I wish that no one would be like McKenzie, treating others badly and trying to humiliate other people that she doesn't like and acting all innocent.

      Actually, I have this book. I got it as a Christmas Gift. I like how this book is different, and made with orginality. It's so cool that this book lets me imagine how the story is really like in real life. It is like entering a fairy-tale, but a little bit different from it. Words can't even describe how much I like this book. Love it! ^_^

              "I'm such a dork!" - Nikki Maxwell. SPOILER ALERT!!! This was probably the funniest book EVER😆! It is about Nikki Maxwell's life as a not-so popular party girl. It was cool how Nikki kept switching costumes when she was helping a ballet class, be at the Boo at the Zoo halloween dance with Brandon😍, AND be with Chloe and Zoey AT THE SAME TIME😬!!! This made me laugh SO HARD, I almost CHOKED😱! I SO recommend this🙂! - spykitten reviews
