In a Nutshell: School exchange shenanigans | Eleventh awesome-packed instalment of a sensationally sidesplitting series. Nikki goes into mega meltdown mode when she has to spend a week at North Hampton Hills International Academy as part of an exchange scheme. Seeing as it’s a cross between “Hogwarts and a five-star luxury hotel” that should be a good thing, right? WRONG! Firstly, this exclusive establishment is attended by none other than Nikki’s sworn enemy, Mackenzie Hollister, the “rattlesnake in lip gloss”. Secondly, selfie-addicted Queen Bee Tiffany seems set on turning Nikki into her “brainless zombie servant”. Oh, and there’s also the matter of having to prevent the school science club from imploding, and her desperation to be selected for an all-expenses-paid trip to Paris (“It’s been like the Hunger Games around here, with kids fighting to the death for a spot”).
Ingeniously irreverent, this series is spot-on for a huge spectrum of tween readers, and I love the author’s flair for peppering the main narrative with amusing interludes, a gem from this book being the episode in which Nikki turns herself into “a mutant blueberry” with her homemade face cream. ~ Joanne Owen
