Some days I feel like dealing with two 5-year olds is tricky, but I’m sure it’s a piece of cake compared to what’s ahead of me when they hit the tween stage. By now we know all about Wimpy Kid but when you’re a tween girl you may not be too interested in stinky trainers and basketbal practice, it’s all about finding the right BFF, knowing the latest gossip and surviving lunch at school without major embarrassments. Join the lovable Nikki Maxwell as she attempts to ditch her dorky ways in the Dork Diaries:
New York Times best selling series Dork Diaries has hit the right note with tweens all around the globe. The easy-to-read diary concept covers all the first-world problems ordinary teens battle with, from holiday crushes to disastrous wardrobe malfunctions and everything in between. Aa a mum of two girls author Rachel Renee Russell knows first hand what really matters when you’re a so called dorky teen trying to find your way in high school.
The Dork Diaries series currently consists of eight titles, six of them are Nikki’s ‘real’ diaries and the other two titles encourage the reader to get active and work on a Dork Diary of her own. With Christmas just weeks away why not grab your daughter or nieces one of the Dork Diaries? (You may want to have a sneaky read yourself too, your daughter obviously doesn’t want you to read her diary but there is nothing stopping you from having a flick through Nikki’s. You might discover some valuable tips!)
The Dork Diaries are available at Dymocks stores across Australia and online and can be purchased individually ($14.99-$16.99 each, paperback) or in great value box sets.
