Summary

Rachel Renee Russell serves up more laughs in the next installment of the New York Times best-selling Dork Diaries series.

Since we first met Nikki Maxwell, she's been doing everything she can to keep everyone at school from learning the truth - that she's there on scholarship in exchange for her dad working as the school's exterminator. The last thing Nikki needs is having her friends and - worst case scenario - her crush, Brandon, associating her with the humongous roach on top of her dad's van!

Now it looks like her secret could be about to come out, and Nikki's willing to go to any zany and wacky length to prevent that from happening. The timing seems perfect when a major talent competition is announced with a school scholarship offered as the top prize. Nikki loves to sing and dance, and now she gets to have tons of fun with her friends while competing for a chance to free her dad from his obligation! (And free herself from all that potential damage to her reputation.) Once again, hijinks and misunderstandings aplenty ensue, as well as more hilarious and heartwarming moments with all our favorite characters.

very talented

these books are cute and entertaining to me, basically looking through the eyes of a middle school girl. it's easy to relate to since my daughter was one last year and I use to hear her stories and how some of them are soo similar to what this girl is going through. I think the first two books were a little bit better than this one but this was still a good book.. can't wait to read more..it's really like growing up with my own kid.

Good book😄👌🏻🤗💗

It's a entertaining story like it but maybe not so much sarcasm😬 I can't tell if she's mad or it's supposed to be funny😂

Loved it

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, because the series is quick and cute. I recommend it to any girl from 4th grade until...maybe 8th or 9th grade, though older kids can enjoy it!

What did you like best about this story?

Probably the plot. I have the whole series in hardback, and I just had to have a version that I could have on my MP3 player at anytime.

Which character – as performed by Lana Quintal – was your favorite?

Nikki, since her voice was used the most. She did a good job with her little sister too.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No, not really. The book isn't particularly moving, but the ending was cute. I love the little twists in the end, when the book all comes together.

Any additional comments?

I want to give the performance a 4.5. When you first hear it...well the reader can sound a little whiny and over dramatic. But you learn to love it 20 minutes in. Listened to it in one night and ready to listen again :) IF I didn't just buy another audio book of a completely different genre.

Perfect short story for a plane ride or a trip to another city. I would recommend buying a longer book for a full road trip though.

Pretty good, wish it were less cynical

What did you love best about Dork Diaries 3?

Narrator did a good job. Story pretty good.

Any additional comments?

The female version of Diaries of a Wimpy Kid, but less cynical (which is good).

What I think is nice about it and what should change 🤗

Well I choose the rating because it was amazing for me at least and yea! I loved it!
But I would add at the end when Brianna put her fist in Brandon’s face I would put “she poped up behind and said “hello! Look mrs. Penelope was born from a pen and came here to say you have COOTIES!!!!”
