Gr 5-8–This book continues in the same vein as the first, sharing many of its flaws. In this installment, Nikki volunteers to help with the Halloween dance but overextends herself by committing to multiple duties in different places on the same night. Presented in diary format, the lined-paper pages and manga-style illustrations provide levity, but too frequently Nikki's adventures slip from amusing into improbable farce. The simplistic and highly unrealistic story; flat characters; and predictable ending will not appeal to readers who can handle the fairly advanced vocabulary. Strictly for fans of the first book.Natasha Forrester, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR

My first grader is a really advanced reader. Basically, she reads nearly a book a day. She's read all the Diary for a Wimpy Kids (great books) and loved the series. Read morePublished 1 month ago by The Williams Family
