ReadItDaddy's Chapter Book of the Week: Week Ending 22nd November 2019: "Dork Diaries: Spectacular Superstar" by Rachel Renee Russell (Simon and Schuster Children's Books)

Phew! Can you believe this is book 14 in Rachel Renee Russell's amazing and hugely successful book series?

The whoop of glee from C that announced the arrival of "Dork Diaries: Spectacular Superstar" could probably have been heard right across the Atlantic - as we once again join Nikki Maxwell and her school chums for another round of craziness, Maxwell style!

Nikki and her bandmates are looking forward to an AWESOME time on tour as the opening act for the world famous Bad Boyz! 

The only downside? Nikki’s frenemy, MacKenzie Hollister, has weaselled her way onto the tour as a social media guru. Oh dear oh dear oh dear!

Nikki’s determined to stay out of MacKenzie’s way to avoid any drama, but then she learns that MacKenzie is going to be her roommate! 

TOTAL DISASTER! Will Nikki survive her dream tour as it quickly goes from AWESOME to AWFUL?!

We don't know how Rachel does it - yet again a truly brilliant slice of Nikki Maxwell's life, filled with spot-on brilliantly observed humour. C is a colossal fan of this series, and proclaimed this latest book the greatest yet, so if that's not a high enough recommendation, I don't know what is!

"Dork Diaries: Spectacular Superstar" by Rachel Renee Russell is out now, published by Simon and Schuster (kindly supplied for review).
