Russell, Rachel Renee. Dork Diaries: Tales from a Not-So-Fabulous Life. Aladdin, 2009. 282   pages. Hardcover. $12.99, ISBN 978-1-4424-0774-9

Fourteen year-old Nikki is having a rough start to eighth grade. She wants a cell phone but her parents won’t give her one, she is starting at a new school where she feels invisible, she has no friends (yet) and she is the target of abuse from the most popular girl at the school, MacKenzie Hollister. Dork Diaries: Tales from a NOT-SO – Fabulous Life is Nikki’s journal, in her own handwriting, complete with some pretty awesome drawings. Have you ever wanted to know what people are really thinking? Face it, how often do we say what we’re really thinking? Nikki is always saying some pretty bold stuff – “But I just say it inside my head, so no one really hears it except me.” If you want to find out what Nikki is thinking and see if she makes any friends, including maybe a boyfriend, and see if she can just be herself at Westchester Country Day, then read this book. You will laugh and cry right along with Nikki.
