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 the dorks. 
 
Rachel Renée Russell’s Dork Diaries 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 www.dorkdiaries.co.uk, the website from publisher Simon and Schuster UK, for more Dorktastic fun, activities, a Dork Diaries blog and info about all the Dork Diaries characters.
 
You don’t necessarily need to read the Dork Diaries in order, but we still recommend starting with book one to get the background. The Dork Diaries reading level is perfect for kids 8+ and the diary book style makes them fun and easy to read. 
 
Dork Diaries 1 came out over 10 years ago and we are now up to number 14! The latest book (Dork Diaries 15), I Love Paris! will come out in the UK on 26th September 2023.
 
Fans of Dork Diaries won’t want to miss Rachel Renée Russell’s latest series – Max Crumbly, the new dork on the block!
