            This book is unforgetable I personally never read books more than once or twice but this series made me break the chain. It's like a girl's version of a diary of a Wimpy kid but WAY better. See how Nikki Maxwell handles tough middle school drama at glance, see how she handles them and makes funnies at the same time. Remember this READ this Series! :D

                  If you are getting ready for middle-school then these are absolutely must-reads. These books are written by a one-of-a-kind author that really understands the mind of a child.
