Publisher Comments:

A smart superhero book for girls with plenty of glitterand#151;perfect for fans of The Powerpuff Girls

It all started with the mysterious purple goo . . .

What happens when four best friends find themselves splattered with a bubbling, genetically altering substance during a seemingly innocent sleepover in a secret, see-through, high-tech, futuristic lab? The develop superpowers, thatand#8217;s what! Iris, Cheri, Scarlet, and maybe Opaline have become . . .

THE ULTRA VIOLETS

After a close encounter with Opaline's pugnacious perfume at her baddie birthday party in book 2, the Ultra Violets realize they have a lot of cleaning up to do.

When IRIS lets her purple flag fly, the UVs decide to reveal their true colors to Sync City.

CHERI is pleased with the applause, but after a little mathematical deduction, she knows the peace won't last long. BeauTek and the mutants are scheming up something sinister in the Mall of No Returns.

And then SCARLET overhears the Black Swans whispering about a mysterious BeauTekification plan and decides to do a little investigating, dropkick style.

Just as the skies are starting to look particularly stormy, OPAL asks to be an Ultra Violet again. Can the girls trust their previously evil friend?

In this exciting third book, the Ultra Violets must team up to save SyncCity from the smelly Joan Riverand#151;and kick some evil mutant BeauTek butt!

Dorks are done and . . . the fuchsia is now!

I bought "The Dork Diaries" for the daughter of my housemates. I had recommended "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" and saw this "girl version." I bought it for her instead and decided to pre-read it to make sure it would fit what she wanted and needed. I'm glad I did pre-read it because it wasn't what she wanted or needed. The injection of popular culture in every other word of the book removed this particular girl from the customer base for the book. The main character, Nikki, is obsessed with materialism, boys and pop culture. The main character was 14 yet the book targets 8-10 year olds. It felt like Seventeen, not like a way for kids to deal with and come out of the isolation of cliques. It didn't have the fun and realistic feel of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid." Rather this book felt like "Shopaholic Tween Goes to Prep." I like the shopaholic series and I liked this book and I would buy it for some kids but it will only fit a certain customer base. This book is not for kidsss struggling with bullies, it's a humorous book on materialism and pop-culture for young girls. Buy for some girls but the better version is by Kinney.

Eighth grade can certainly be traumatic, with humiliations building and building upon one another until you feel like your very life is over. But as Dork Diaries shows, it can also have its redemptive moments. Meet Nikki. An eighth grader who's new and feeling out of sorts. It doesn't help that her locker is by the ever-popular would-be goddess, MacKenzie. And that MacKenzie--just by being herself--can intimidate just about anyone into doing her bidding. But life isn't all bad, Nikki discovers two friends--Chloe and Zoe--and a potential love interest, Brandon. Can this would-be-artist find her time to shine?

Written in journal-format, Dork Diaries is a fun little book combining art (sketches) and narrative (diary entries). The book covers it all--the angst and the sometime joys that comes from being that age, from discovering things for the first time.
