ALA Booklist
When a famous TV producer calls Nikki Maxwell "to discuss recording her band's song Dorks Rule!,'" all she can say is "SQUEEEE!" But will she be able to juggle school, her crush, her nemesis, and a "ridonkulous" new schedule centered around her own reality show? In this seventh book in Russell's New York Times best-selling Dork Diaries series, Nikki's innocent, dramatic tween personality shines through in diary entries filled with reflections, confessions ("I'm SUCH a DORK"), smiley faces, exclamations ("OMG!!"), and comic drawings. Series fans and newcomers alike will enjoy this window into the life of a relatable protagonist who remains true to herself in the spotlight of stardom.
