This funny book is the third in the Dork Diaries series. As with the previous books, it is age appropriate, engaging, and quick to read. The story is told completely in the form of diary entries, sprinkled liberally with fun and witty drawings and comics, much like a girl's version of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. Nikki experiences all of the typical middle school issues: she is embarrassed by her parents, has a crush on a boy, and has to deal with school's mean girl. Nikki has a lot of heart, and she and her friends are a great support to each other. Completely wholesome, this book would appeal to a large age range of girls, from beginning readers to middle schoolers.
