Have you ever thought about writing a book? Think you could do it? That's exactly what Rachel Renee Russell did when she was in sixth grade! Talk about ambitious, Rachel wrote her first book when she was only in elementary school. And she and gave it to her twin brothers for their birthday. How sweet!
But what is the Kids' Choice Awards nominated book, Dork Diaries about? It's about eighth grader Nikki Maxwell who moves to a new school and has to deal with a queen bee. Rachel wrote it based on her own life in middle school and used her daughters' middle school lives as inspiration. Nikki is her youngest daughter and she helped with illustrations!
