Dork Diaries: Tales from a not-so-talented Pop Star

Rachel Renee Russell

Fiction

For ages 9 to 12

Simon and Schuster, 2010, 978-1-4424-1190-6

Nikki Maxwell is feeling pretty good about life for a change. She got to dance with her “crush” Brandon at the Halloween dance ,and he does not seem to mind that she is a “dork.” Then, as per usual, things start to fall apart rather rapidly. It all begins when Nikki is forced to babysit her little sister Brianna. Brianna bamboozles Nikki into taking her to Queasy Cheesy for a pizza and to Nikki’s horror, the sisters are chosen to perform the Queasy Cheesy theme song. How embarrassing! Nikki has no choice but to get on the stage and get on with it. She is actually having a not-too-terrible time when she sees that her arch enemy. MacKenzie. is recording the whole performance on her cell phone.

Nikki lives in fear that MacKenzie is going to show everyone in school the video, but when nothing comes of it, Nikki starts to relax. Which is not a good idea. MacKenzie’s next move it to threaten to tell everyone that Nikki’s father is an exterminator and that Nikki is a scholarship kid. If Nikki wants her secret to stay a secret, she mustn’t participate in the school talent show.

Miserably Nikki tells her two best friends that she cannot be in the talent show with them. Nikki cannot bear to tell her BFFs what MacKenzie is up to, nor does she tell them about her dad and the scholarship. It is just too embarrassing.

As if this is not bad enough, there is a strange insect infestation in the school. Nikki is terrified that the principal will call in her father, the school’s contracted exterminator, and then everyone will know what her father does for a living. Everyone will see his beat up van with the enormous fake roach on the roof.

In this third Dork Diaries title, poor Nikki Maxwell gets into several sticky situations, and she discovers that it really does not pay to keep secrets from your friends. She comes to realize that it important to embrace who you are, even if you are a dork.

Written in a delightful journal format complete with a handwritten text and doodles, this is the third title in the Dork Diaries series.

- Through the Looking Glass, September 2011

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.

A Kid's Review on June 16, 2011
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!

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.

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!!!

I buy this series of books for my 10 year old granddaughter. She loves them and when a new one arrives she even turns off the "TV.l "Wow.
I have skimmed thru some of them and think the story line in each book is positive for a young girl.

I bought this book for my 9 year old daughter as she is a fan of the series. I have read some of it and it seems to be written fairly well. The illustrations add to the book in a way that reminds me of how my daughter would react to certain situations. She absolutely loves it and it's very appropriate for young readers.

Daughter is 10 and loves this series. She reads them all. Biggest thing is they have pictures, so if your kid struggles with no picture books this is a good series. Only advice is follow the series and don't skip since our job is to make them read and they need to enjoy it. I skipped one book and she wasn't interested in reading it after.
