      I thought the book was so funny! I liked the illustrations and how they weren't always illustrating the book but also adding more to the story and making funny comments.

          I love this book! I like how Nikki, the main character has the same crush as Makensie, the popular kid at her school. It's also really realistic. Can't wait to read the next book!

              I like this book because, I understand that Nikki has a stressing life.She came across these mean girls at school and especially MacKenzie is making fun of her about what she wears and everything. But she's lucky right on time she gets cool new friends and this book has so much DRAMA.The book is kinda fun. I read the second book before but not the first. I really like the second book, I'm so exited to read the 3rd book of the Dork diaries series but I would not recommend the 1st book its a little boring but mostly fun. And I would rate this book a four star. I liked it 99% of the time, so I gave it a four star. The other books of the series is interesting I believe because if the 2nd book is interesting the rest will be interesting too.

                Nikki Maxwellis moving to a new middle school, and instead of giving her a phone,(the thing she wants most,) her mom gave her a diary. At first she hates it, but then she starts to fill it with all her adventures in middle school. All around hilarious and i totally relate,( to a degree)

                    This book is about a girl named Nicki Maxwell is is going to start a new middle school. She doesn't really fit in and is considered a "dork". I and my friends love this series, and can't wait when new books come out. It is considered one of my favs, and all the characters are interesting. 5 stars!
