From School Library Journal
Grade 5-8–Fourteen-year-old Nikki J. Maxwell has been awarded a scholarship to a prestigious private middle school as a part of her father's bug extermination contract. Her angst as she deals with the resident mean girl, her embarrassing parents, her crush on the hot boy, and making new friends are all recorded alongside numerous sketches of her life. Although occasionally amusing, Nikki is not a very likable character. She is shallow and self-centered and fails to show any growth in the book, even as she one-ups popular and cruel MacKenzie in the end. In fact, Nikki, who steals her neighbor's hearing aid and plays pranks on her little sister, is somewhat of a mean girl herself. All the other characters are underdeveloped, including Nikki's family and her new BFFs, Chloe and Zoey. Black-and-white drawings, which are often witty, appear throughout the text, which is printed on lined pages as though from a diary. Fans of Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid (Abrams) may enjoy this book, but it's an additional purchase.–Terry Ann Lawler, Phoenix Public Library, AZ

It worked! She read this book cover to cover the very next day and was able to summarize it for me. She LOVED IT!
This style of writing is very engaging for kids and the sketches are just what's needed to break up the monotonous task of reading for kids who may not read very often.
This book is about situations young girls can relate too. I agree there are some things mentioned that I thought ... hmmm should that be in there? ( I also feel that way about Disney movies ) but it breezes right over her head; or has stimulates conversation with me, which is who she should be learning from. Thank you Dork Diaries for kindling my daughters love for reading, opening topics, encouraging young girls to embrace what makes them unique, and establishing self acceptance. We are now on book 3, only 3 weeks after starting the 1st book.
