Nikki has started a new school and for starting a new school her mom gets her a diary. It definitely wasn't the cell phone she wanted, but she writes in it anyway.Nikki doesn't think she fits in at the school and has to deal with the popular girl at the school, who is pretty mean to her. How much worse can life get for Nikki?I've read the first few books in The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series and loved them. When I found out about this series, I decided to give it a try since I greatly enjoyed The Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Dork Diaries is a lot like The Diary of a Wimpy Kid, but it is the girl version. I think it is just as funny as Wimpy Kid and I enjoyed every second of reading it. I couldn't put it down.I love the book and Nikki, even if she overacts to things. She is different than Greg from Wimpy Kid, though. Greg can be very selfish and while I think Nikki can be that way sometimes to, she is not like Greg. The things she does are funny, though and her overacting.I think fans of Wimpy Kid will love this book. I know I did.
