Book Cover for the Dork Diaries Series
It's 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' for girls in this hilarious series of graphic novels!

'Dork Diaries' follows eighth grader Nikki Maxwell as she chronicles through text and sketches her move to a snooty new school; her epic battle with her mother for a smartphone; her enthusiasm for drawing and art; and a love/hate fascination with the new school's queen bee, a girl named Mackenzie, who becomes Nikki's rival in a school-wide art competition. Nikki writes about friendships, crushes, popularity, and family with a unique and fresh voice that still conveys a universal authenticity. Nikki's sketches throughout her diary add humour and interest to the books, which will be a surefire hit with tween girl readers.
