À propos de l'auteur

Rachel Renee Russell is a lawyer who prefers writing children's books to legal briefs (mainly because books are a lot more fun and pyjamas and bunny slippers aren't allowed in court). She has raised two daughters and lived to tell about it. Rachel lives in northern Virginia with a spoiled pet Yorkie who terrorises her daily by climing on top of her computer and pelting her with stuffed animals while she writes. And, yes, Rachel considers herself a total Dork.

    I have heard this book for some many years now and never thought to read it. This book is really funny and their are so many puns in the book that I don't think I even found them all. The hand-drawn pictures in the book make this book that much better because it gives the author more time to develop the story than to describe a setting. I was shocked to find that this book does contain bullying, however, it's not that bad. After reading this book, I am stocked to read the other books in the series.

    Some interesting stuff re: writing on the body and the protag.'s role as narrator, but otherwise merely an ok novel. I was mostly out off by the artwork, which seemed too perfect, and suggested more that a computer had drawn it than a human hand. Should be included on a syllabus, but make sure other GNs are, too.

    Dork Diaries Tales from a NOT-SO-Fabulous Life is about a eighth grader who just transferred to a new school and she is trying to be a CCP (Cute,Cool, and Popular) girl,but,instead, she gets landed as the biggest dork in school. Nikki, the main character, has a locker right next to the biggest CCP diva in school, and she is struggling to find friendship, popularity, and courage. It is a bumpy road. I absolutely loved this book because a) I like graphic novels, and b) it is like a female version of Diary of a Wimpy kid, which I liked. Also, I kind of think a little bit like her.

    I really liked the book there was a great tale and had ups and downs from a teenaged girl at high school. Niki (the main character) calls herself a dork and keeps a diary. With a mean bully life is not great and has to face many different problems. However i sometimes found that Niki goes on a little bit and I would just want to find out what happen. Over all a great book which I would recommend to anyone.

    I thought this would be the girl version of Diary of a Wimpy Kids (which I loved). What I found instead was a snarky and shallow character. I feel this book lacks the substance of Wimpy Kid. The girl seems grumpy, unhappy, and kind of mean all of the time. Contrasted with Greg from Wimpy kid who is balanced with fun and mischief...there's not much to laugh about here. My 11-year-old daughter likes it though.

    "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" has a female counterpart. Nikki Maxwell attends a private middle school, thanks to the bug extermination work her father has done there. Nikki isn't CCP (cute, cool and popular) but she longs to be part of that crowd even though CCP-supreme Mackenzie treats her like dirt. After various failures and humiliations that Nikki hilariously and poignantly documents, she finds her niche with her art and some new friends much more suited to her personality. Young teenage girls will identify with Nikki's chatty, OMG! tone and her typical-teen insecurities.

    Really, a 2 1/2. This series is quite popular with the middle grade girls at my school... Diary of a Wimpy Kid gone female. And it has plenty of funny moments, but it just kind of lost credibility for me when I discovered that Nikki is supposed to be 14 years old. I just couldn't buy it... her fixation on the Jonas Brothers and Hannah Montana would have been believable in an 11- or 12-year-old narrator, maybe, but not 14. The references to trendy pop stars who are trendy no longer have already dated the first title in the series, and Russell just seems to try too hard with WAY too many OMGs and other chatter that is supposed to sound like today's young teen but instead just sounds kind of exhausting. Eh.

    I read this book at least five times and im still not tired of reading it! Nikki is a dork. McKenzie, a popular snob, is ruining her life. Nikki is trying to survive. Brandon, her love might be in love with McKenzie. Everythings a mess when Nikki trys out for the art compatition, but then McKenzie trys out and makes everything think she going to win. But Nikki ends up winning! She has a reward for winning, what is she going to spend it on?

    This book is great! I found myself laughing out loud at the entries that Nikki puts in her diary. I can remember having those same thoughts as a middle school girl. The content is approachable for kids because it is written in language they they will understand but also introduces new vocabulary. Perfect book for young adolescent girls.

    Picked it up because the pictures were cute. It reminded me of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. But, I kind of like this more. The story is about a girl in Middle school having to deal with the drama of the cool kids. The story was good. Loved the characters. The pictures reminded me a little of anime, loved that. Overall, it was really enjoyable.

    Dork Diaries earns my approval for middle –school readers. In this book, 14 year-old Nikki Maxwell conveys her daily problems of being the new kid at a rich, private school through her diary. The author narrates the story through the words and drawing of Nikki. I first grabbed this book because the main character and I share the same name (even the same spelling of it); however, at by the end of the book I realized how much I enjoyed the humor that the author uses to tell Nikki’s story. With that said, I am not sure if the language truly reflects how 14 year-olds talk. While I enjoyed having the story told through the literary talent of a young teenager, I thought the illustrations really made the whole really come together. Though I have not read any of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series yet (it is on my to-read list), this book seems like it would be comparable to that series. I will let you know. In general, I recommend this book; especially if readers enjoy series because this is only book one.

    This is a great book to read. Dork Diaries is a book about Nikki's new life in a private school in 8th grade. In the book there is a popular mean girl named Makenzie and her BFF Jessica. In the book she befriends with two girls named Chole and Zoey. She experiences lots of problems being the biggest dork in school. I really enjoy this book. You can always get great books to read in your local bookstore. :)

     Fourteen-year-old Nikki Maxwell writes in her diary of her struggle to be popular at her exclusive new private school, then of finding her place after she gives up on being part of the elite group.

    Seems like a Wimpy Kid for girls. Nikki is on scholarship to a snooty private day school because her dad has an extermination contract. His truck has a giant roach on the roof. Fairly predictable stuff, her locker is right next to the queen bee's, cute boy takes note of her, she's publicly humiliated. Some funny stuff, will likely be popular with the girls. I'm not a fan of these broadly broadly drawn characters and their often mean spirited behavior.

    Eighth grader Nikki Maxwell candidly shares with us the journaling of her no-so-fabulous days at her new private school Westchester Day School. Nikki's father, being the new exterminator, earned her a scholarship to a school where she doesn't fit in with the rich and snobby CCP (Cute, Cool & Popular) clique led by the snarky Mackenzie. Nikki knows that in order to dazzle the new crowd into accepting her she needs a new iPhone but her `rents stubbornly refuse to buy her one. Her Mom even goes so far as to tell her that if she really wants one she'll have to save up and buy it with her own money. Ugh! Just when everything seems to be doomed the school announces a school-wide art competition where the first prize is $500!! Nikki knows she's totally got this since she's an artist with plenty art camp experience. Nikki runs to the school office to sign up and who does she run into??? None other than Mackenzie. No way is she brave enough to compete against the queen bee of WDS. Can she turn one disaster after another into triumph? Dork Diaries is simply fabulous! I've been in Nikki's shoes a time or two as I changed schools 8 different times while growing up so I can totally sympathize with being new girl on the block. At least my Dad didn't drive me to school with a giant roach on top of his van. The entire book is Nikki's diary filled with hilarious stories and amazing drawings (also illustrated by Rachel Renee Russell). It's the perfect read for young girls who agonize over not being part of the in-crowd like I used to. Nikki goes from the zero to a hero and then finally settles nicely into her niche as a typical teen. I recommend this read for all YA lovers.
