Product description

Nikki isn’t surprised to learn that her crush, Brandon, volunteers at a local animal shelter. He’s such a sweet guy – of course he wants to help those adorable puppies! So when the shelter is threatened with closure, she knows she must do something to help her sweetheart (and the cute creatures that live there!) Nikki, Chloe and Zoey decide to slip and slide at an ice skating competition to raise funds for the shelter. But Brandon is keeping a secret, and soon skating to victory matters more than ever. No way is Nikki letting the shelter shut, and nor is she letting Brandon get away! But will Nikki swoop to glory – or suffer a painful crash landing?

    At last! Brandon is noti/cing Niki and in a more than good friends way.. ahhh things can’t get bad can they… YES!!! Brandon’s Gran’s animal shelter only is about to close down.. and er.. he lives with his Gran….and if it closes down.. he’s in a new school! Niki will do everything she can even skating for the charity!! but can a dork do it.. is it enough? will Mackenzie get in the way? So much.. so little time!!! I enjoyed the book because it’s light funny up- lifting and full of twists and turns yet ends well. Recommended age 10-15

    I loved this book after I read the first few pages I just could not stop reading it. I loved the bit when Brandon asked Nikki to the animal shelter.when Mackenzie locked Nikki Chloe and Zoey in the cuboid it was kind of funny.It was so sad when found out Brandon’s secret. It was the best story ever.I know it was a diary but it seems like it is a real life story.

    after the first few pages i just couldn’t put this book down!i was really interested in seeing if nikki could turn from dork-on-ice to a princess-on-ice!i think mackenzie was particularly nasty in this one she really is a self-centered fashin-obsessed DIVA!

    I really want to read this book as I am a big fan of the DORK DIARIES! It seems as if it is the best of them so far and my best friend Lily is loving it so she is letting me borrow it after her. I can’t wait!!!!!!!!!!

    Nikki and her two best friends, Chloe and zoey, are skating to help save Brandon from moving houses. I liked that after ever chapter nikki would say something good about her family that would link to christmas. In addition the way Brianna acts is so hilarious and cute. For example when they watch the show in the theatre. I love dork diaries, I’m a dork myself :),I’ve been reading these books since I was 12,now I’m 14 and I still love it!!

    If you like this book you will defiently love diary of a wimpy kid.
