REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER:
Who doesn’t love, love, love an accident prone and totally dramatic teenager girl? Well it’s a perfect book for a grade-schooler to giggle out loud to and dive into … much like adults laugh at Dumb and Dumber. I can like totally see preteens enjoying this book … from the annoying little sister who causes accidents to a hunky guy, Nikki Maxwell may be a dork, but she’s totally likable and funny to read (as long as you’re like up with some pre-teen lingo). With age-appropriate content and silly plots and stories, I would definitely recommend Dork Diaries if you’re looking for a gift for a pre-teen, grade-school girl. And an impressive note: The Dork Diaries are written and illustrated by author Rachel Renee Russell.
