Reviews for Tales from a Not-so-talented Pop Star


Horn Book Guide Reviews 2011 Fall
In her third story, Nikki chronicles the fallout from an embarrassing video of her singing, posted on the internet by nemesis MacKenzie. Determined to win the school talent show, Nikki must also deal with fickle friends, a crush, and her secret status of scholarship student. Anime-style illustrations accompany the text, which overflows with exclamation points, OMGs, and much squeeing. Copyright 2011 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

Truly adorable illustrations grace this popular Wimpy-Kid-for-girls diary of a lower-middle-class tween maneuvering through cliques and drama at her ritzy private school. Poor Nikki is a scholarship student, part of the deal her father, as school exterminator, cut with the school. And his truck sports a giant, disgusting roach on top as advertising! Russell is an attorney but is said to prefer writing tween books to legal briefs. If Dork Diaries keeps up its ascent, maybe she can trade in those little black suits for comfy bunny slippers.
