Rachel Renee Russell serves up more laughs and adorable illustrations in the next installment of the bestselling DORK DIARIES series.

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 is an attorney who prefers writing children’s books to legal briefs. She currently resides in Michigan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dork Diaries Book #3 On a scale of 1 to 5, I would give this book a rating of 5 out 5. One reason is because it was really funny. For example, when Mackenzie tells Nikki (the main character) that fans will scream her name when she becomes a superstar and sings her songs, Nikki replies that, “If my ears were bleeding, I’d scream too.” Another reason why I like this book is when Nikki joins the band with Brandon, Violet, Theodore, Chloe and Zoey, and they sing a song together. It is really nice and funny to see them singing and dancing together. Also, this book had a good ending because Nikki and Mackenzie’s team wins. The prize is a school scholarship and 15 minutes of fame. One thing that I disliked was Mackenzie released bugs all over the school and then Nikki’s dad had to come to exterminate them. This made Nikki upset and she started worrying because she did not want the students to find out that her dad is the school’s exterminator. When I read this part, I felt bad for her and Mackenzie is really mean to her as well. So that is my review of Dork Diaries Book #3: Tales from a Not-So-Talented Pop Star.
