Hello everyone. My name is Nikki Maxwell and I'm 14 years old. I stopped by today because Bonnie invited me to be the guest blogger here at Red Lady's Reading Room. She's also going to be reviewing my hilarious memoir, DORK DIAIRIES: TALES FROM A NOT-SO-FABULOUS LIFE. You would never believe all of the crazy stuff that happens to me and it's all true. Middle school can be very traumatizing, that's for sure!
I always enjoy reading Bonnie's wonderful book reviews and they come in handy when I have to write book reports for school ;-). However, one of my favorite things here is the photograph of that intriguing window with the beautiful red flowers. Have you ever wondered what it would like to lean out of that window and smell those flowers? Well, this morning, I got to do just that. Lucky me :-)! I hope your day is as nice as mine.
I am very honored and impressed that Rachel incorporated my blog into the character of Nikki Maxwell. This gives you an idea of how wonderful Rachel's artwork is and Dork Diaries is full of unique artwork like this. Thanks so much to Rachel for sharing this with us today.
Here's a description of Dork Diaries:
This hilarious novel follows eighth-grader Nikki Maxwell as she chronicles through text and sketches her thoughts on friendships, crushes, popularity, and family. Illustrations.
Please stop back tomorrow for my review and a very special giveaway that includes a copy of Dork Diaries and a unique purse filled with goodies related to the book.
