In the fourth book of the New York Times bestselling series that’s as popular as it is dorky, Nikki Maxwell is determined to help out her crush!

Nikki Maxwell isn’t at all surprised to find out that her crush Brandon volunteers at a local animal shelter. He’s such a sweet guy—of course he wants to help those adorable puppies! Then Brandon tells her that the shelter is in danger of closing, and Nikki knows she can’t let that happen. Especially when she discovers a shocking secret about Brandon that makes keeping that shelter open more important than ever. So Nikki and her friends Chloe and Zoey enter an ice skating competition to help raise money for the shelter, but (big surprise) Mackenzie has to stick her nose in and cause trouble so that she can be the one to swoop in and save the day. No way will Nikki let that happen: She’ll just have to come up with some extra creative ideas this time!

          I enjoyed this book, and considering that I lack any grace whatsoever, I could totally relate to Nikki. The humor and plot development were great so I'd definitely recommend this book. ~ Xeta <3

            As usual Rachel Renee Russell's books are amazing. I really liked this book, because it was full of humor, and silliness. I really love all her Dork Diaries books, but this one was probably my favorite!
