MacKenzie and I do NOT get along. I'm guessing it's probably due to the fact that she hates my guts!!! She is forever gossiping behind my back saying super mean stuff like that I have no fashion sense whatsoever and that our school mascot , Larry the Lizard, wears cuter clothes than I do. Which might actually be true. But STILL!

SummaryAdd a Summary
When Nikki Maxwell starts eighth grade at a new school, her mother gives her a diary, Nikki would rather have a new iPhone so she can impress her schoolmates, but instead, she begins to chronicle her life through words and drawings. Readers learn about Nikki's irritating little sister, her crush on Brandon, her friends Chloe and Zoey, the popular mean girl, MacKenzie, and her tattoo art project for the art competition. The book does not follow one particular plotline, but instead, meanders through the daily life dramas of angst-ridden Nikki. It does culminate with some exciting developments -- both at the art show and with her heartthrob science lab partner.

To make matters worse, she has a locker right next to the school's most popular girl, MacKenzie Hollister. MacKenzie labels Nikki as a “Dork” and goes out of her way to make Nikki’s life miserable.
