Meet Nikki Maxwell! She’s starting eighth grade at a new school—and her very first diary packed with hilarious stories and art in this SUPER SQUEE updated edition of Book One of the #1 New York Times bestselling Dork Diaries series!

Nikki confesses all in her first diary ever: her epic battle with her mom for an iPhone, meeting her new soon-to-be BFFs Chloe and Zoey, falling for adorably sweet crush Brandon, dealing with her zany little sister Brianna’s antics—and the immediate clashes with mean girl Mackenzie, who becomes Nikki’s rival in a schoolwide art competition.

                  Nikki Maxwell is starting eighth grade at a new school and this book is her personal diary of the funny and disastrous events that she continuously finds herself in. I would compare this book to the girl's version of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. I recommend this book to kids who enjoy reading easy-to-read books that are funny and authentic and highlight true coming-of-age experiences that a kid goes through. I rate this book 3 out of 5 books.

                    This book was awesome! The author did a great job of portraying the real middle school experience in such a humorous way. There is drama, boys, and three best friends that stick together throughout Middle School. I loved it!
