Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Remy Dou
Just when Nikki thought she could get used to her new school, she finds out about the Sweetheart Dance. As if the pressure of a school dance wasn't enough, Nikki discovers it's a girls-ask-guys-out dance. Even though she sits right next to her crush, Brandon, in science class, her arch-nemesis, MacKenzie, likes Brandon, too. MacKensie will stop at nothing to keep Nikki and Brandon from going to the dance together, even if it means posting unflattering pictures of Nikki all over the school for everyone to see. Some might think that after half a dozen novels Russell's plots might get stale. Instead, readers will find their favorite dorky heroine in another comical, sweet, emotional predicament. Capable of holding even a fuddy-duddy adult's attention, this installment of the "Dork Diaries" serves up an appetizing read. Russell keeps her audience guessing to the very end about whether or not Brandon prefers Nikki or the wicked MacKenzie. With hilarious characters like Miss Bri Bri, a.k.a. Nikki's little sister Brianna, and nail biting cliffhangers, young girls will breeze through this fun-to-read book. Amusing illustrations accentuate most scenes. Despite the abundance of middle school colloquialisms, parents will like that the narrative and plot are wholesome and positive. As with others in the series, this book will have young readers yearning for the next one. Reviewer: Remy Dou

To Rachel, the Author of Dork Diaries: I love your books so much!!! I came up with something, though. If possible(ever) i think it would be cool if there was movies about Dork Diaries. I really want to see what all of the characters would look like in human version( but dont worry i still love the cartoons) I think that would be awesone. They did that with Diary of a Wimpy Kid, so why not make a Dork Diaries one? - Trinity

I am not really a diary person but still this book has me on the edge of my seat. It's amazing though how the book really help some students with the same problems. For example I have this crush on a smart, cute, and sporty guy in my class and I don't know if he likes me because in one moment he's really really nice the next he's talking to his buddy about what to do during recess! It's so confusing!!!!:( Anyway Nikki is basicly an idol to millions of other girls who' s hearts stop beating every time they see they're crush(like me.) I really hope they make a movie about this series to help me. Yes I admit I act like a dork sometimes that's why I what a movie of this series! Sometimes we really just need to say it. So I'll just say it here.....I'm such a dork!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
