Back in the beginning of April, I reviewed the very cool book, Dork Diaries: Tales from a Not-So-Fabulous Life , written by Rachel Renee Russell. You can read the review here. The book finally came out yesterday and I highly urge everyone to go check it out, if you have a preteen or teen girl...she'll love it! Diary of a Wimpy Kid for the ladies!
Here is an excerpt of my review:
"I fell for Nikki Maxwell, 14 year old, self-proclaimed dork, and typical middle-schooler. Obsessed with becoming popular and being forever frustrated with her parents for not giving her the supplies she NEEDS to reach that status, Nikki has to learn to stand up to mean girls at school, and try to figure out a way to make her new crush notice her. All of this is written down in her new diary (which she didn't even want...seriously...don't parents understand that cell phones are waaay more important than diaries? Sheesh."). So cute!!
Done in diary format with lots of cartoons alongside, Dork Diaries is very much comparable to Diary of a Wimpy Kid, just in girl-form. Hilarious in many parts, teen girls are definitely going to be able to connect with Nikki, and will be giggling at the drawings and pure spit-fire nature of Nikki. The cartoons are almost Anime-ish which will have wide appeal too. Very cute book!"
Rachel Renee Russell has graciously offered up TWO of the Nikki's purse/book packs for two lucky readers of mine! The purse includes...obviously, a purse, a hardcover copy of the book, and tons of goodies (Love's Baby Soft perfume, nail polish, gum, a fun pen, etc, all having their own place in the book.
