A letter from the Author:

Hi Team Dork UK!

Can you believe that the very first Dork Diaries book was published more than seven years ago???A lot has happened to Nikki Maxwell since then and with Dork Diaries book eleven now published I feel very blessed to have been on a journey with Nikki and Dork Diaries fans across the world. So many of you have written, emailed or messaged me to say how much you relate to Nikki and for a while I’ve wanted to revisit this first book, changing it up a little to make sure Nikki’s world keeps reflecting YOUR lives.

So here it is – the SUPER SQUEEE edition of Dork Diaries with updated content and illustrations – I hope you enjoy it!

Always remember to let your inner dork shine through!

Rachel Renée Russell

(PS. Don’t forget to check out the dorky extras at the back of the book!)

Synopsis

Dork Diaries by Rachel Renee Russell

Nikki Maxwell is not popular, in fact Nikki Maxwell is the opposite of popular; she's a total dork! But Nikki's hoping that by moving to a new school she might just stand a chance of making some friends and leaving her old lame-ways in the past. But life is never that simple! Follow Nikki's life through sketches, doodles and diary entries as she starts her new school, battles with her mum for an iPhone and meets her arch-nemisis, the school's queen bee, Mackenzie. Enter Nikki's world through her sketches, doodles and diary entries.

About the Author

Rachel Renee Russell

Rachel Renée Russell is an attorney who prefers writing children's books to legal briefs (mainly because books are a lot more fun and pyjamas and bunny slippers aren't allowed in court). She has raised two daughters and lived to tell about it. Dork Diaries was her debut novel and there are now over ten books in the internationally bestselling series which has appeared on the NYT bestseller top ten non-stop for over a year, and which has over 19 million copies in print worldwide. Her new book The Misadventures of Max Crumbly was published in June 2016. Rachel lives in northern Virginia with a spoiled pet Yorkie who terrorises her daily by climbing on top of her computer and pelting her with stuffed animals while she writes. And, yes, Rachel considers herself a total Dork.

One of the World Book Day 2015 Authors Rachel Renee Russell is a lawyer who prefers writing children's books to legal briefs. She lives in Aldie, Virginia.

A Q&A with Rachel...

Can you share a little about your background? I grew up in Saint Joseph, Michigan, a small city located on the shore of Lake Michigan. I have 2 younger sisters and 2 younger twin brothers. I wrote and illustrated my first book in 6th grade as a birthday present for my brothers. I’m an attorney, but I enjoy writing children’s books more than practicing law. I currently reside in northern Virginia.

Do you have any children?
I have two daughters. My younger daughter, Nikki, helps with illustrations. I am also looking forward to adopting 3 children in the near future.

Are the events in the book true?
Many of the events in the book are based on the experiences I and my daughters had in middle school.

Were you considered a Dork in middle school?
Yes! And, I’m STILL a DORK!

Do you have any pets?
I have a dog, a yorkie.
