Teen Student Reviewer (16):
Dork Diaries was my favorite series in elementary school. I could easily relate and understand the themese in the story. This book is a coming-of-age story that tackles the hardships of being in the spotlight and managing school at the same time. I can connect to the themes and I like the examples of childhood maturity in real-world situations..
