the plot is overused. the characters are dramatically stereotypical. the drama is cheesy and exaggerated. i say this generally for all the books in this series. is it the outcast who snags a really cute boyfriend purely through her brains and wit and whatnot and disses the really cute, really rich socialite? according to modern society, no. *totally* agree with dprodrig. as for its striking resemblance to diary of a wimpy kid, yeah. exactly. other than that, the book is okay

I didn't like the book in the beginning but its really good in the end. My fav part is when Nikki, Chloe and Zoey do tattoos for the school

In this book, Nicki has to compete in the talent show show with Mackenzie. My favourite character is Nicki. My favourite part is when Nicki and her group still stays happey even though they lost.

When Nikki Maxwell starts eighth grade at a new school, her mother gives her a diary, Nikki would rather have a new iPhone so she can impress her schoolmates, but instead, she begins to chronicle her life through words and drawings. Readers learn about Nikki's irritating little sister, her crush on Brandon, her friends Chloe and Zoey, the popular mean girl, MacKenzie, and her tattoo art project for the art competition. The book does not follow one particular plotline, but instead, meanders through the daily life dramas of angst-ridden Nikki. It does culminate with some exciting developments -- both at the art show and with her heartthrob science lab partner.

14-year-old Nikki Maxwell is not happy when her father arranges a scholarship for her to attend a private middle school called Westchester Country Day as part of the contract for his bug extermination services.
Nikki does not fit in with the wealthy, designer clad students and spends most of her time alone writing in her diary. To make matters worse, she has a locker right next to the school's most popular girl, MacKenzie Hollister. MacKenzie labels Nikki as a “Dork” and goes out of her way to make Nikki’s life miserable.
It appears the new school may work out when Nikki befriends two other dorky girls, Chloe and Zoey. But, things take a turn for the worse when Nikki enters the school art show and discovers her main competition is her enemy, MacKenzie, who will stop at nothing to win.

About an 8th grade girl with a PATHETIC life!

Keep a diary, and someday it'll keep you.

It seems to me that the problem with diaries, and the reason that most of them are so boring, is that every day we vacillate between examining our hangnails and speculating on cosmic order.
