Reader Reviews

diary, relatable, funny

I love the entire Dork Diaries series! It’s actually the series that inspired me to write my series as a diary format as opposed to basic chapters. The character of Nikki in the Dork Diaries series is so fun and relatable and I enjoy reading about her adventures that she writes about in her journals. I wanted my character Cheryl to be like that too, even though her life isn’t quite as normal as Nikki’s.
