Better find out soon because...THE FUCHSIA IS NOW!
"In this follow-up to her popular Dork Diaries: Tales from a Not So Fabulous Life, Russell offers a slight but amusing tale of a middle-school nerd who finds she is not so nerdy after all. The book is structured as the diary of Nikki Maxwell, with pages designed to look like handwritten, heavily illustrated entries. The story follows Nikki's trials and tribulations in the face of harassment from the most popular girl in class, a possibly requited crush on her lab partner, kooky plans from her boy-crazy best friends, and complications from her pesky little sister. Things spin out of control when Nikki finds herself with three commitments the night of the big dance. The most affecting, original parts of the book are Nikki's attempts to balance her excitement over her budding romance and her loyalty to her friends. The rest of the plot covers the well-trod territory of the lonely but lovable outsider. Filled with manga-inspired artwork, the story should amuse younger readers, but not challenge them. Ages 9 — 13. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

After she finds out Mackenzie was lying and her dream of going to the party with Brandon could be a reality, Nikki has two events to juggle . . . plus plenty of other entertaining trials and tribulations along the way!

CHERI: A girly girl on platform rollerskates who's never met a rescue puppy or a nail polish she didnt immediately-and-madly love.
SCARLET: Short enough that you wont see her sneaking up behind you. Freckled enough that you might mistake her for innocent. But look out!
OPALINE: Loveable, huggable, supershy, sweet as pie . . . or is she?
