A great series and yet another example of the "unreliable narrator" of a diary. Great cartooning style by Mrs. Russel, with believable characters readers can identify with. 4/5.

In my opinion, Nikki overreacts too much.

This series is sooo good!!! And Brandon is too cute!!! x3 I love that the author showed a character in his type of financial situation; it helps readers understand that different types of people exist, and that it's not just a glamorous world for everyone.

A PRIVATE SCREAM-

Mar 09, 2014

MacKenzie and I do NOT get along. I’m guessing it’s probably due to the fact that she
HATES MY GUTS !!
She is forever gossiping behind my back and saying supermean stuff like that I have no fashion sense whatsoever and that our school mascot, Larry the Lizard, wears cuter clothes than I do.
Which might actually be true. But STILL!
I do NOT appreciate that girl BLABBING about my personal business.
This morning she was even more vicious than usual.

I could NOT believe she actually said that to me!
I mean, how can a COLOR clash with a FLAVOR?! DUH!! They’re like two TOTALLY different, um . . . THINGS!
That’s when I lost it and yelled, “Sorry, MacKenzie! But I’m REALLY busy right now. Can I IGNORE you some other time?!”
But I just said it inside my head, so no one else heard it but me.
And if all of that isn’t enough TORTURE, the annual WCD Halloween dance is in three weeks!
It’s the biggest event of the fall, and everyone is already gossiping about who’s going with who.
I’d just totally

Nikki Maxwell has been doing everything she can to keep everyone at school from learning the truth--that she's there on scholarship in exchange for her Dad working as the school's exterminator. The last thing Nikki needs is having her friends and--worst case scenario--her crush, Brandon, associating her with the humongous roach on top of her Dad's van! Now it looks like her secret could be about to come out, and Nikki's willing to go to any zany and wacky length to prevent that from happening. The timing seems perfect when a major talent competition is announced with a school scholarship offered as the top prize. Nikki loves to sing and dance and now she gets to have tons of fun with her friends while competing for a chance to free her Dad from his obligation!

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.

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.
