Review: Dork Diaries, TV Star

Nikki Maxwell, Queen of the Dorks, is back in the seventh book of the blockbuster Dork Diaries series. Nikki and her friends are about to have their five minutes of fame! A reality TV crew is going to follow them for the whole month as they record their hit song together. But will the excitement also cause unexpected problems, now that cameras are everywhere Nikki and her friends go?

Is life in the spotlight really going to be all they think it is or will it be a Dork Disaster?

Full of Nikki’s doodles, diary entries and dorkish disasters, get ready to embrace your inner dork with his brand new novel from the hit series. Perfect for fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Tom Gates and Jacqueline Wilson.

Rachel Renee Russell has said that the Dork Diaries series was inspired by her own middle school experiences, as well as those of her two daughters, Erin and Nikki. Her older daughter, Erin, helps with writing the Dork Diaries series and her younger daughter, Nikki, helps with illustrations.


We asked two of the Tuesday Project families to review Dork Diaries, TV Star . Here’s what they had to say.

Rebecca, aged 7

It’s about this girl that likes this boy. Her BFFs are Chloe and Zoey. The mean girl in the book is called Mackenzie. I love it. It’s the best book I have ever read. 10/10



Praise indeed!

William, aged 10 said:

I wouldn’t normally read this type of book because I don’t like the way it is written as a diary but I think other people would like it because it has funny characters and the story has lots of twists and turns. I didn’t like the look of the book or all the text talk. There were quite a lot of characters but my favourite was Nikki’s Mum.
