Rachel Renee Russell serves up more laughs and adorable illustrations in the next installment of the bestselling DORK DIARIES series.

Nikki Maxwell has been doing everything she can to keep everyone at school from learning the truth--that she's there on scholarship in exchange for her Dad working as the school's exterminator. The last thing Nikki needs is having her friends and--worst case scenario--her crush, Brandon, associating her with the humongous roach on top of her Dad's van! Now it looks like her secret could be about to come out, and Nikki's willing to go to any zany and wacky length to prevent that from happening. The timing seems perfect when a major talent competition is announced with a school scholarship offered as the top prize. Nikki loves to sing and dance and now she gets to have tons of fun with her friends while competing for a chance to free her Dad from his obligation! (And free herself from all that potential damage to her reputation . . .) Once again, hijinks and misunderstandings aplenty ensue, as well as more hilarious and heartwarming moments with Nikki and her friends.

    This book tells about a girl called Nikki Maxwell, a self-proclaimed dork, who receives a prank letter from MacKenzie, who wants Nikki out of the school and offers a school fee that Nikki cannot pay. Nikki, who does not have any money or talent, joins the talent show to get the prize and money. But MacKenzie is best and the talent shows all the years before...

          Nikki wants to become a pop star until Mackinzie gets to become her manager and everything goes south will Nikki overcome it, or will Mackinzie ruin it? This is my favorite "Dork Diaries" book I remember getting my very first one about 3 years ago and fell in love so I decided to get more of them and always save a few bucks for when our school held a book fair and I'd go and buy one of the dork diaries with the money!
