Dork Diaries – Rachel Renée Russell (Freya, Guest Reviewer)

Nikki Maxwell gets a diary for her Birthday. She isn’t interested at all, but eventually goes on to writing in it. She joins a new school – Westchester Country Day (WCD) and meets a new mean girl, a new crush and new BFFs, Chloe and Zoey. The three of them are total dorks, doing funny and wacky things. There’s an author meet and greet happening in New York in a while and Nikki, Chloe and Zoey need to prove to Mrs Peach that they are good LSAs so they can go.

They all sign up to be Library Shelving Assistants (LSAs) to help Mrs Peach (the Librarian) in the Library. They have tons of fun reading all the magazines and books; testing out perfume samples and catching up on the latest gossip about their favourite celebrities.

I absolutely LOVE this book. It adds the frosting on the cake by making it a diary entry. It adds all of Nikki’s personal feelings, why she doesn’t want certain people to know things, like how she feels. I especially love how good she is at art – she shows off her artistic ability by drawing in her diary, showing readers her style and copying her designs of temporary tattoos she drew on the CCPs (Cute, Cool and Popular) and dorks.

Overall, I would rate it 10/10.
