Tales from a Not-So-Glam TV Star

(Dork Diaries: Bk. 7). 3 CDs. 3 hrs. S. & S. Audio. 2014. $14.99. ISBN 9781442370203.
Gr 4–8—Nikki Maxwell is back. Her band is recording their hit song, "Dorks Rule," and the producer decides to give Nikki her own reality TV show! Between filming the show, band practice, voice lessons, dance rehearsals, studying, and homework, Nikki is barely able to squeeze in time with her crush, Brandon. But when he asks for her help with an important scholarship project, Nikki has to decide which is more important, stardom or her friends. Narrator Jenni Barber uses the perfect mix of OMGs and SQUEEEEs to bring Nikki and her BFFs to life. Although the narration is spot-on, readers may still wish to follow along with the book so they don't miss out on Nikki's expressive diary illustrations. Overall, this is a seamless fit with the rest of the series and will be popular with fans of the previous books.—Anne Bozievich, Friendship Elementary School, Glen Rock, PA
