Dork Diaries are a fun and eye-catching series for the tween in the house, and I don’t have one so I started to flick and got caught up reading the first few chapters.

Diaries are such a great storytelling tool for this age group because the pages are filled with eye-catching details and the fonts are generally a lot more fun than novels. I remember a few books written in the style from my childhood but I won’t show my age by telling you what they were.

Nikki Maxwell is back in the 13th instalment of this bestselling series with the Birthday Drama. Nikki’s BFFs are planning a mega awesome birthday party but it all comes crashing down when Mom says it’s way over budget.

Doesn’t take long for Nikki’s dream party to start looking like a dorky disaster, but can Nikki and her BFFs formulate a plan to save the day and avoid a major birthday disaster?

This is quite an easy read, sure to capture the attention of book loving tweens. I look forward to hearing what they think.

For all of your Dork Diary needs you can find the series at and on Facebook.
