Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

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

I was SO excited to hear that the Dork Diaries series would be continuing with this second book, Dork Diaries: Tales From A Not-So-Popular Party Girl. I adored the the first book, the author has such a way with humor that I think all her jokes are funny and I just adore Nikki! And the situations Nikki finds herself in, oh man, I'm not the target audience but they were hilarious! There is something about the way that Nikki writes her journal that is so innocent and genuine that she's instantly lovable.

In this book nemesis MacKenzie really starts to show her claws so it's really interesting to see how Nikki will handle these situations in her polite and innocence manner. Nikki's friends Chloe and Zoey are also a great backup duo to Nikki and her crazy ideas! While I would have loved to have seen Nikki's little sister Brianna a bit more in this book, she was still as funny as I remember her from the first book.

I can see the Dork Diaries series going on for a long time and with each book Nikki is maturing a bit more and learning new things about herself. I love how this book ended and it's set up for what I'm sure will be a great third book to the series! Can't wait to read it!

This is the second installment of the DORK DIARIES, the girls version of the DIARY OF A WIMPY KID books for boys.

It is written in a diary form with drawings. When I told my fifth grade girls that I had the second book in the series, they got very excited, since most of them had already read the first installment.

Nikki is the heroine of this series. She is in middle school and is a great artist. She has two BFFs, Chloe and Zoey, and a crush on a popular boy named Brandon. There is also a queen bee named MacKenzie. Nikki gets involved with the Halloween dance. She has to plan and organize it - and MacKenzie wants her to fail.

The story is told in a very charming way and has a lot of good cultural references. You want to root for Nikki and boo MacKenzie. The story is a little unrealistic, but I still accepted it hook, line, and sinker.

I enjoy this series and so do all the girls I have given it to. So curl up and enjoy this very funny story!

Format: Paperback
My daughters and I have read ALL of the Dork Diaries books together. Here are 10 reasons why I, as a parent, love this series:

1. Nikki takes pride in being a Dork! She thinks being a bit different from others is a good thing and encourages kids to take pride in who they are.

2. Nikki and her friends love reading and volunteer each day in the school library. She and her friends collected and donated hundreds of books to give to a Children's shelter.

3. Nikki also volunteers at Fuzzy Friends the local animal shelter. In spite of not knowing how to ice skate, she competed in a charity ice skating event and won $10,000 for the shelter.

4. Nikki has to deal with a bully and mean girl named MacKenzie. She not only stands up to MacKenzie, but also typically outsmarts her.

5. When Nikki sees other children being bullied or treated badly, she stands up for them. She is also very outspoken and was critical of how girls were being bullied on a popular TV show and the mentality of shallow, celebrity party girls. Most adults who complain about her comments have obviously NOT actually read the book because Nikki is agreeing with them that both bullies and celebrity party girls exhibit inappropriate behavior.

6. Nikki is from a blue collar background and is teased by some of the wealthier children at her private school. In spite of this, she still is friendly, intelligent, witty, and generally secure in who she is.

7. The book has very diverse characters, unlike most children's books today. Almost half of the school children reading books today are from diverse backgrounds. Nikki's best friends are Chloe, who is Latina, and Zoey, who is African-American.

I read this book once and totally LOVED it. A week later I read it again and again. I have read it about ten times now and it never gets old. I definetely reccomend this to anyone who likes the diary of a wimpy kid books and anyone who is looking for a book that they can read over and over and never gets old.
