Do you like realistic fiction? If you do Nicki. J . Maxwell can help you out in Dork Diaries: Tales of the NOT SO FABULOUS Life, by Rachel Renee Russell. Nicki is having trouble at her new school because her locker is located next to the meanest, biggest snob at Nicki’s school, Mackenzie. But her locker location is only the least of her problems. Throughout the year Mackenzie does whatever she can to make Nicki’s school year horrible, but one thing turns the tables. There is a reading week field trip to NYC. Nicki and her two best friends, Chole and Zoey are doing something unthinkable to impress the reading teacher. They are giving each other temporary tattoos with a pen. The trend catches on with the most popular boys in school. The girls are so excited by how many people want tattoos. The girls start a business where they give people tattoos, but for each tattoo everyone has to donate two books. The business gets so popular that Mackenzie gets jealous. Nicki thinks that her year is turning around until the day of the art show. Her perfect art piece that she was going to enter gets run over. She also thinks she is losing her friends to the CCP boys until she goes to check out the art show. Will her pictures of all the tattoos that she gave to the students win a prize? Looking at the project, Nicki completely forgets that her parents were transferring her to a different school. Does she still want to leave? I hope you decide to read this book. It’s really good and I guarantee you won’t want to put it down.
