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!

      If you are a girl that is having trouble in school, drama, and popularity. This is a book for you. You can relate to Nikki and feel her pain. But even if you can't relate to Nikki this book is a great book to read.

                  This book is my favorite out all of my Dork diaries! This book is about how Nikki skates in a ice skating competition to win the prize money for her crush's favorite store, Fuzzy Friends. Mackenzie however also decided to help but Nikki's crush didn't want her to help him . Will Nikki save Fuzzy Friends or will drama queen Makenzie?
