Review: Dork Diaries 3 1/2, 4, & 5 — Good Comics for Kids | Ladies Making Comics |

The Dork Diaries has been steadily circulating in my middle school library for some time now, but for the last 5 months, this series has been the most requested and on the top 10 list of items circulated since September. The series reads like Diary of a Wimpy Kid but actually skews to a younger audience—the reading level isn’t very difficult—while the topics talk right to the heart of any middle school girl. There is a bratty younger sister, mean girls, crushes, embarrassing parents, and of course tons of homework!
