Nikki Maxwell is going to a new private school. She wants to be accepted into the popular group but she believes that in order to do that she needs an expensive cell phone, a new wardrobe, and a new family.

She finds out the hard way who her real friends are and how her mad skillz in art can help her be accepted.

My fifth grade boys love DIARY OF A WIMPY KID, and this is a series I can introduce to my girls, which is written in the same style. Nikki is likable but can be annoying at times, which makes me like her even more. She isn't perfect but yet gets what is important in life.

She has two great friends, who again aren't perfect, but are very realistic. Between her and her two friends they get themselves into a lot of humorous situations that many middle schoolers can identify with.

I enjoyed this book a lot and hope to have many copies next year to share with my class.
