Book Description

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.

About the Author

Rachel Renee Russell is an attorney who prefers writing tween books to legal briefs. (Mainly because books are a lot more fun and pajamas and bunny slippers aren't allowed in court.)

She has raised two daughters and lived to tell about it. Her hobbies include growing purple flowers and doing dotally useless crafts (like, for example, making a microwave oven out of Popsicle sticks, glue, and glitter). Rachel lives in northern Virginia with a spoiled pet Yorkie who terrorizes her daily by climbing on top of a computer cabinet and pelting her with stuffed animals while she writes. And, yes, Rachel considers herself a total Dork.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great addition to the series June 14, 2011

I bought this for my 9 year old daughter and she read it in one day. In this day and age, for her to sit and read for hours on end says a lot. I'm looking forward to more.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME BOOK! June 16, 2011
A Kid's Review
Format:Kindle Edition
I started reading Dork Diaries a while ago and I was so excited for Book 3 to come out. It was fantastic and I could not put it down for one second! It was funny,
like all of the others, and the author has done it again. She was able to make
the perfect book. Nikki, the main character, was also great in this book and
her diary entries also came along with funny, awesome drawings that were as
fantastic as books 1 and 2. In this book Nikki enters a talent show, but MacKenzie
Hollister has also entered it and Nikki will have to give it her hardest to win.
Can she? Find out in this 3rd companion to the Dork Diaries!

5.0 out of 5 stars After reading <Dork Diaries 3>..... August 27, 2011
A Kid's Review
I totally love this series!!!! Last year, I got the first book at a bookstore. I read it and it was so funny!!!! Ha ha~~~~~And this year I heard it had the sequel. So I got it on Kindle. And it was fun too!!!! And I heard it had a third book too, So I downloaded it from Kindle. I loved it~So good!!!! I like Nikki in the book. Why? Because she's the main character! And she's nice, Not bad like Mackenzie. That's why the book is so funny. And even her friends are dorks!!! And she is so lucky because she sits next to her crush in biology class. I think she is a dork because her family are dorks. Yahoo!!! I love it!!!

This book makes you feel like you are Nikki, the middle schooler and I love the part when Chloe, Zoey and Nikki gets stuck in the closet! ( which is funny and scary at the same time)
I still can't believe that I could have been reading this great book when I am reading a super-boorringg book.
Can you believe that?
So I am givinng this book an A+

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book! May 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I think this is great book. It was funny and very entertaining. However I don't like how some of the characters make us look shallow, fashion obsessed, wanting cell phones and popularity, only to regret it later because something better comes out. But they say you have to be yourself. Otherwise I give it a 5*, keep up the good work!
