My fave book(s) is/are the Dork Diary set. It's about a girl who transfers to a new school on a scholarship but she has lots of drama and excitement along the way. The girl is called Nikki Maxwell and her bet friends are Zoe and Chloe. Her crush is a boy named Brandon and her arch-nemesis is Mackenzie. It's a diary and there are 9 reading books, 1 about how to dork you diary up, 2 about where you write your own diary and 1 about how to be a DORK! [s:sm3/1jw1]
