      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!

              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.
