This is the first book in the Dork Diaries series.  This book is about a girl called Nikki.  She has started a new school.  Her mother gave her a diary as a present.  Nikki takes the diary to school and writes in it every day.  There is a mean girl at school called MacKenzie who is very, very popular!  In fact, she is the most popular girl at school.  This book is romantic (Nikki is in love with a boy at school), very funny and it is the best book I have ever read!!!!!

This book is about a girl called Nikki who has a crush on a boy called Brandon. Nikki wants to ask Brandon to a dance but she is scared he miggt say no. Nikki is kind and loving. Brandon is quite shy and doesnt like to express his feelings to the world. My favourite part is when Mackenzie who is Nikkis enemy asks Brandon to the dance and he says no because he really wants to go with Nikki.

I liked this book because it was very fast paced and exciting. The adventures that Nikki gets up to is very interesting to read. Her friends are very supportive of her which is very heart warming. Also Nikki's hopeless crush on her beloved Brandon gives readers a squirmy feeling at how cute they are together. Overall I loved this book and see it as  a work of literary art.

This was an amazingly good book.  It was about a girl called Nikki who was moving into WCD.  My favourite character is Mackenzie Hollister because she has the awesomest things ever.  I recommend this book for girls only.

Its always nice to have a friend to talk to. To be honest, a diary is kind of like a best friend. You tell it all your fears and dark, dark secrets. Like Nikki, a girl with a bad reputation in middle school. Her only friends are Chloe and Zoey. She aldo has a super cute crush names Brandon. Things arent going to good for Nikki, especially the fact she has a locker right next to Mackenzie, one of the CCP girls. One of the extra, extra popular CCPs. I enjoy this book very much and like it because it uses a funny description of words and celebrities names. This book is 5 stars for me!

I love, i mean LOVE the Dork Diaries series. I was very reluctant to start reading them as they weren't my usual cup of tea but the diary style of books came up in my monthly book club and we all had to read books in a diary format. As soon as i started reading about Nikki and her life i absolutely fell in love with the story and writer, Rachel Renee Russell. 

This book is an introduction to the rest of the series, however you don't really need to read them in order if you just want to read one story as they can be read as stand alone books.

I found the characters engaging, the story was well paced and i love the doodles in Nikki's diary, i feel they really help the story along. It's a really funny story, we are introduced to Nikki who instead of a diary wanted a new phone but alas was saddled with the diary! Nikki details what her life is like predominately at school, which is safe to say that as a dork, is not without it's antagonists!

this is the first book in the dork diaries series but they do not need to be read in order.
the main character in this book is a girl called  Nikki J. Maxwell, who is really kind.
in this story Nikki has started a new school which is very scary for Nikki. and the book tells you about what it is like for her and how hard it is to make new friends 
i really really really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to girls aged 7 plus

This was a very good book, I enjoyed reading it greatly. Nikki Maxwell is such a colourful character, and her antics her not only hilarious, but they also give readers an insight on how not to handle certain situations.
In this book we meet Mackenzie Hollister, Nikki's arch enemy. The two don't get along and Mackenzie will do anything to make Nikki's life miserable. As well as her crush on Brandon, Nikki has to balance school, and home life, with her equally crazy family. Follow Nikki and her friends as the strive to survive the perilous, and dramatic middle school. This book is not only relatable but completely enjoyable.

I DIDN'T LIKE IT!!!!!!  1.It was written in American style writing.  2.It kept stopping and starting so it was hard to follow the story.(If there was one!)  3.It was a diary.(I prefer stories.)   This would be brilliant for girls who like diaries.
