Nikki J. Maxwell receives a scholarship to a fancy private school as part of her father’s pest extermination contract.  Let the roller coaster begin!  Nikki’s school experience will sound familiar to many readers: her parents are embarrassing, her girl classmates are mean, her crush is the hottest boy in class, and her ability to make friends is challenged.  Readers who enjoyed Diary of a Wimpy Kid will find more clever illustrations in this novel, which is published on pages that make it feel like we are reading Nikki’s own diary.  (Kristin Roper for Colorado Blue Spruce Award, 2013)
