Dork Diaries

by
  • (253 reviews)

    Nikki Maxwell is not popular, in fact she’s the opposite of popular, she’s a total dork! But Nikki’s hoping that by moving to a new school she might just stand a chance of making some friends and leaving behind her dorky ways. But life is never that simple in the number one, bestselling Dork Diaries series from author Rachel Renée Russell. 

    Follow 14-year-old Nikki’s life through sketches, doodles and diary entries as she starts her new school, meets her arch-nemesis the school’s queen bee, Mackenzie Hollister, and encounters endless dramas and adventures with new BFFs Chloe and Zoey. And not forgetting her quest to win the affections of her crush Brandon Roberts, life is never straightforward for a dork. 
     
    Rachel Renée Russell’s books have sold millions of copies all over the world and are illustrated by her daughter Nikki Russell. A Dork Diaries movie has been rumoured to be in development for a while but in the meantime fans can check out dorkdiaries.com for more Dorktastic fun, activities and info about all the Dork Diaries characters.

The Dork Diaries reading level is perfect for kids 8+ and the diary book style makes them fun and easy to read.
