This is another great book companion for those young teens who wants tips on keeping a diary. Parents could give this as a gift to their kids aside or including the book series itself.

Russell, R. (2011). Dork diaries: how to dork you diary. New York, New York: Aladdin.

This is one of the books in the Dork Diaries series. There is empty space for the reader to actually write in the book, and keep it for her/himself. But it also has a story, most of which is centered on how to keep a diary. The girl shares advice, such as: “Tip #1: discover what type of diary is right for you!” Interspersed with her tips are vignettes from her own life about how the tips were generated. The reas

I liked this book. Nikki has very supportive friends, when she thought her diary was lost her friends helped her look all over the school. So the mean popular girls wouldn't find it first and read it. A funny part in this book is when Nikki finds out her sister had the diary all along, she took it to school for show and tell. That's just one of the many funny parts in this great book. I would ceratinly recommend this book to my friends.

I liked this book because she had a crush with a boy and the boy doesn't like her and she has to past by a lot of bad things because she lost her diary and her enemy found it and then she showed it with the whole school and everybody was laughing at her and she left to her house and then she didn't get out of her room after her mom had to make her too.

This book is a part of the Dork Diaries series, but it is different than the other books. In this book Nikkie shows us a way to dork-up your diary. Of course, this book caught my eye for two reasons. The first is that I love the Dork Diaries series and the second is that I love writing in journals and I'm kind of dorky myself!! Read this book if you want to dork-up your own diary!!

This book was really good. I liked how the author found a way to let you have fun while you are reading. This book gives you the opportunity to write in it. You don't see those kinds of books very often. These Dork Diaries books, once again, got my attention. I am excited to reveal what happens in the next book.

I love this book. I thought of a theme of this book. Is that never give up. I choose that because she trying to find her diary. But she dose not find it. She won't give up in till she finds her diary. The whole book is about where she is trying to find her diary. But giving you tips to. But then she founds out that some one in her house took it. But gives it back to her. She told that person that she could not touch her things with out asking.

Superb one.. another book geared primarily for elementary or middle school students-- a complete laugh-out- and loud humorous book, although there were parts that sounded somewhat realistic even to me (an adult). I got a kick out of the girls getting trapped in the boys' locker room. Preteen and young adult girls will probably love this book. A nice one.

¿Qué pasaría si un día descubrieras que tu diario se ha perdido? Todos tus secretos, tus temores, tus desventuras familiares, tus momentos maravillosos, todo, absolutamente todo, está ahí. Nikki ha perdido su diario y está en el alucine total, porque si no lo encuentra pronto, ¡es probable que toda la escuela se entere de sus intimidades!

Como siempre, he disfrutado mucho leer este libro. Aunque trae una historia, no es exactamente una novela, es una guía de c

Although this book has a story, it is more of fun guide for young people to write creatively in their own journal. The book is riddled with spaces for a person to write and draw. The last fifty pages or so are blank lines for the purpose of diary writing. Once again, the author tells a humorous story centering around her main character, Nikki, who has lost her diary and fears that the whole school will discover her secret thoughts that were contained in it. This makes a nice launching pad for th ...more

Nikki Maxwell has been writing in a diary since the start of the school year, and she usually takes it everywhere she goes--so she can't believe it when one morning she can't find her diary! The hunt is on, and while she looks, pursuing various theories about where it could be, Nikki can't help putting together a list of important diary-keeping lessons to remember in case of missing diary emergencies like this one.

Let you inner dork shine through! I will forever love these books. They make me feel that I am me and me is just right. I especially loved this book because I can really write on it as a diary. Plus, the tips are very cool!

I like this book because the girl looses her diary.Then she goes all crazy looking for it.And she gets very sad because she has looked every where for it when she finally finds it in the library shelf.
