Genre: Realistic Fiction, Comedy
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! (And free herself from all that potential damage to her reputation . . .) Once again, hijinks and misunderstandings aplenty ensue, as well as more hilarious and heartwarming moments with Nikki and her friends.
Rachel Renee Russell dazzles audiences again with her amazing writings and true whit! :) Her amazingly successful dork dairies series continues with the hilarious hi-jinks of Nikki Maxwell.
I love the true writings of a teenage girl struggling with the options of trying to fit in whilst embracing her inner dork. It is amazing how Rachel Renee Russell truly captures that. I love Nikki. She is funny, fun, and trying to make the impossible possible. I really liked her and Brandon again, and her rivaling with MacKenzie.
A true read for all ages, I am sure Nikki will be a hit with girls of all ages!
