Dork Diaries 2: Tales From a Not-So-Popular Party Girl

Recipe for disaster: 4 parties. Add 2 friends and 1 crush. Divide by 1 mean girl out to RUIN Nikki. Mix well, put fingers over eyes, and CRINGE.

I thought it would NEVER happen, but my life is FINALLY going well for me.

I’m adjusting to my new school and hanging out with my BFFs Chloe and Zoey. And, get this! My crush, Brandon, has asked ME to be his lab partner—a seriously awesome development.

However, when I overhear mean girl MacKenzie bragging that Brandon's taking HER to the Halloween dance, I’m totally BUMMED and sign-up instead to spend Halloween at a kid’s party with my bratty, little sister, Brianna.

Lucky for me, I find out Mackenzie is lying and my dream of going to the party with Brandon could actually become a reality! But, can I juggle TWO events at the exact same time and survive a wacky assortment of trials, tribulations and disasters?!! HELP!!!

Dork Diaries 3 1/2: How to Dork Your Diary

I’ve been writing in my diary since the start of the school year, and I almost always take it wherever I go—but OMG!—of course, one morning I just could not find it ANYWHERE! Eek! I looked for it EVERYWHERE, writing down anywhere I thought it could maybe be . . . . losing your diary is the WORST!! Then I decided that until I find it, I totally HAD to put together a list of important diary-keeping lessons to remember in case of missing diary emergencies like this one.

This diary is full of tips from me on fun things to write about in your diary, with space for you to write and draw your own entries. Meanwhile, my BFFs Chloe and Zoey, my ANNOYING little sister Brianna, my crush Brandon (sighhh), and mean girl MacKenzie are all involved in the search for my real diary, with plenty of adventures along the way! SQUEEE!!!

Dork Diaries 4: Tales From a Not-So-Graceful Ice Princess

I wasn’t at all surprised to find out that my crush Brandon volunteers at a local animal shelter. He’s SUCH a sweet guy—OF COURSE he wants to help those adorable puppies! Then Brandon tells me that the shelter is in danger of closing, and I know I can’t let that happen . . . especially when I discover a SHOCKING secret about Brandon that makes keeping that shelter open more important than ever. So I enter an ice skating competition with my friends Chloe and Zoey to help raise money for the shelter, but (big surprise!) MacKenzie has to stick her nose in and cause trouble so that SHE can be the one to swoop in and save the day. No way will I let that happen: I’ll just have to come up with some extra creative ideas this time!

Dork Diaries 5: Tales From a Not-So-Smart Miss Know-It-All

I develop a sudden interest in student journalism that may or may not (okay, DEFINITELY does) have to do with the fact that mean girl MacKenzie has started writing a gossip column. And there just MIGHT be some info involving my crush, Brandon, that I don’t want MacKenzie reporting to the world.

So I join the school newspaper staff—and end up as an advice columnist! It’s fun at first, answering other kids’ letters. But when my inbox is suddenly overflowing with pleas for guidance, I feel in need of some help MYSELF. Fortunately I have BFFs Chloe and Zoey on my side—and at my keyboard!

Or worse . . . what if he's waiting for MacKenzie?!! It's time for me and my BFFs, Chloe and Zoey to tackle the topic of love, Dork Diaries style! SQUEEEE!!!!
