Book Review: Dork Diaries Drama Queen (Book 9)
Drama Queen is the new book in the phenomenally popular book series Dork Diaries by Rachel Renee Russell. The series has been in the New York Times bestseller top ten non-stop for over a year and has sold over 13 million print copies worldwide.
If you’re not familiar with the series, they are the personal diaries of a 14-year-old girl called Nikki Maxwell and they show drawings, doodles and comic style strips to document her life alongside more traditional text diary entries and dialogues. There’s lots of drama and fun!
Rachel Renee Russell gets her inspiration from her own experiences from school as well as those from or own two daughters Nikki and Erin. The older one, Erin, helps with the writing of the Dork Diaries books and the younger one, Nikki, helps with the illustrations. I think that’s wonderful and it makes sure that the books suit today’s kids’ style and taste. Rachel Renee Russell is actually an attorney but she prefers writing books for tweens because it’s more fun!
The style is definitely what many kids like! I would recommend this book to children from around age 9 to 13. It’s the kind of book that you want to sit and read in one sitting because it’s fun, exciting and quick to read but you can easily dip in and out of the book too. Perfect for today’s busy kids! The Dork Diaries series is similar to the Wimpy Kid books in the way that it’s written but Dork Diaries is girly and there’s more drama.
