Product Description

About the Author

Rachel Renee Russell is a lawyer 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. Rachel lives in northern Virginia with a spoiled pet Yorkie who terrorises her daily by climing on top of her computer and pelting her with stuffed animals while she writes. And, yes, Rachel considers herself a total Dork.

This is the second installment of the DORK DIARIES, the girls version of the DIARY OF A WIMPY KID books for boys.

It is written in a diary form with drawings. When I told my fifth grade girls that I had the second book in the series, they got very excited, since most of them had already read the first installment.

Nikki is the heroine of this series. She is in middle school and is a great artist. She has two BFFs, Chloe and Zoey, and a crush on a popular boy named Brandon. There is also a queen bee named MacKenzie. Nikki gets involved with the Halloween dance. She has to plan and organize it - and MacKenzie wants her to fail.

The story is told in a very charming way and has a lot of good cultural references. You want to root for Nikki and boo MacKenzie. The story is a little unrealistic, but I still accepted it hook, line, and sinker.

I enjoy this series and so do all the girls I have given it to. So curl up and enjoy this very funny story!

Those of you who read my Dork Diaries review will remember how much I enjoyed it, and how much I've been looking forward to Party Time. I'm glad to say that this second instalment is just as fun as the first, and is the perfect book for readers of around nine years and older.

Nikki Maxwell is back, and this time she has a major problem: she's over-booked! Not only is she supposed to be at a ballet class Halloween party, but she's also supposed to be organising the school dance and hanging out with two different groups of people. All at the same time. Nothing is ever easy or quiet for Nikki, and how she juggles this night of epicness is both hilarious and stressful. I won't say whether she pulls it off or not - you'll just have to read it and find out!

As with Dork Diaries, Party Time is funny, realistic and visually appealing. The illustrations add so much to the story, and I'm not just talking about an extra laugh or two when you see Nikki almost get her eye poked out by little sister Brianna. They really add an extra element of enjoyment to the book, and I can just imagine how much I would have loved to read these when I was 9.

The Dork Diaries series is fast becoming my favourite for younger readers, and I really hope there are more dorky stories living in Rachel Renee Russell's head. I'm sure Nikki has many more embarrassing moments just waiting to happen, as well as lots of gossip to share about her crush on Brandon. More please!

Before I begin this review, I just want to come clean about a few things. First of all, I'm male. Second of all, I'm in my early 20s. And thirdly, I did buy and read this book. If you want to know why exactly then check out my review for the first 'Dork Diaries' book - 'How could it be anything else but a best seller?' It will explain everything.
But with that being said, just what is it about this party-themed book/diary that I found as intriguing as Rachel Renee Russell's first novel? Let's start with the story.
The story continues the life of 14-year-old Nikki Maxwell. Carrying on from where her last diary entry left off (which, BTW, according to this book was literally one day ago), Nikki has finally settled into her new life at WCD private school - although she still considers herself to be the least popular dork around. After hearing about the annual Halloween dance, she and her BFFs, Chloe and Zoey, sign up to be on the clean-up crew, hoping it will increase their chances of getting dates. Unfortunately, Nikki's arch-rival Mackenzie Hollister is elected chairperson of the event, and she leaves Nikki and her friends in a difficult bind. Now Nikki has to work out a way to save the dance from disaster AND juggle her own teenage problems - with hilarious results.
In regards to the story itself, I found that 'Party Time' was just as entertaining and funny as the original 'Dork Diaries' thanks to its unique style. The way it's written as diary entries with drawings, smiley faces and big bold capital lettering, really makes the narrative feel like it was written by a 14-year-old girl. This not only helps the story feel more believable - even when things get a bit over-the-top - but it allows the reader to connect with Nikki on a personal level.

This book is a great book it is hilarious. Some parts are suitable for under 6 girls but the rest is fine. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes books which are short, have not a lot of words on a page and that the book has pictures. I really liked the part were Nikki got asked to go to the dance by Brandon , but I disliked the parts were Mackenzie Hollister is mean to the clean up crew by resizing from the chairperson and cancelling everything that was planned for it. This book has very funny bits which I loved. The most funny part was were Brandon put Nikki's rat head on and said how he felt about Nikki. I can understand what Nikki is going through with her love life. Because she can't think of what to say to Brandon which is like me because I don't know what to say to my boyfriend. I recommend this book to ages 6 and over because it can talk about how difficult life can be when you are older.
Thank you for reading my review on Party time (dork diaries) I hoped this review helped you!
