Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

It just took one lump-producing bump on the head to turn Dork diarist Nikki Maxwell to a not-too-average schoolgirl into a fairy tale character. Not only has her April Fool's Day mishap transformed her into a Fairyland wonder; it has also transported her Chloe, Zoey, Brandon, and even that mean schemer Mackenzie into the realm of princesses, frogs, and strange predicaments. Move over, Grimm Brothers; a dorky new dreamer is in town!

    Omg!!! Book #8

    Number 7 was amazing and so were the others I can't wait for this one to come out too!!! Im sure it will be spectacular like all the others. I think this book is like for 9 yrs and up. Though everyone can really enjoy it! I am a huge fan and I honestly cant wait for this one to come out!!!!!!!SQUEEEE!!!! This book is action packed and funny. If you havnt read the earlier ones, I suggest you start from number 1. Just in case you wanted to know what the book is about, its about a girl named Nikki. Nikki goes to school where she has her crush now kind of her boyfriend Brandon, the mean snobby diva Mackenzie, and her BFFS chloe and zoe. Basically, another name for this book could be drama. Anyways, the point is I would recommend this book 100%. Get it! It's worth the pay

    Hate. Brianna.

    I seriously can't STAND Brianna! Nothing annoys me more than stupid little siblings that think they rule the world. I wish Brianna would actually stop being such an obnoxious, rude girl and making Nikki's life horrible.

    Crush problem PLZ HELP

    Ok, so i am crushing on two guys. But i cant decide which one is best for me. The first one is named jack. He has tan skin, shiny brown eyes, and long dirty blonde hair. And he is in my homeroom. He also has the locker next to mine. One day, i caught him staring at me! I dont know if he likes me or something, but otherwise for my classes, i never see him.
    The second one is named riley. He also has tan skin and dark brown eyes, but his hair is shorter and darker. He is very popular and every single girl or boy wants to be friends with him. I talk to riley more than jack, and im starting to think of him as a friend. He is very encouraging and loves to do sports, but a bit of a show-off. He went home sick for at least 3 whole days last week and it was rumored riley was riding his bike, fell off, and broke his arm. I feel really bad for him! Theres also a sixth grade halloween dance. Should i ask riley and/or jack to go with me? Or should i bail out and stay home on the night of the dance and read? I am also very, very, shy. So i need some advice that will give me confidence, not push me too far ahead. So plz help me! -fangrl356

This is a great book from 9-100,000,000 this book is great for anyone. If you havent read any of the dork diary books yet i suggest starting from book 1 and head all the way up to book 8! :)

    To crush problem please help

    I had this problem too and yes im only in fourth grade i know halloween has already passed but if i were u i would choose riley because if ur starting to become friends with him it might be easier to like him even though he is a bit showoffy thats normal because all boys have a little showoffiness its also probably a sign of affection besides jack might not really want to go out with u if ur not in his classes cause sometimes boys forget who u r if u dont see them that much i hope this advice helps u even if u went out with jack and hes ur crush now its ok ur welcome to respond to me i cant say my real name so ill be known as PEGASILOVER98
    I hope that in the future my mom will let u be my nook friend
    THX!
