Puppy Love

Written by Rachel Renee Russell

Part of the Dork Diaries Series

Key Stage 3 General Fiction

LoveReading View on Puppy Love

Nikki Maxwell, star of the Dork Diaries, gathers more fans with each new book and it’s easy to see why sales now run into the millions. Girls everywhere identify with Nikki, whose efforts to do the right thing are so often derailed by the realities of life, and whose inner self is so much more confident and articulate than the Nikki the world sees. In this book, her arch rival Mackenzie Hollister, apparently gone for good at the end of the last book, makes a surprise and unwelcome return, and Nikki and love-interest Brandon get landed with a Labrador and seven puppies to care for – in secret. The story is told in breathless teen-speak and frequent Wimpy Kid-style cartoons add to the fun. Another up-tempo warm-hearted read.  ~ Andrea Reece

Puppy Love Synopsis

More diary entries and doodles from Nikki's not-so-fabulous life, in the tenth instalment of the phenomenally successful Dork Diaries series. When the animal shelter that Brandon volunteers at (how cute is he?) is too full to take a litter of abandoned puppies Nikki decides to look after them until the shelter has more room. Simple, right? Ummm no! Her parents won’t allow dogs in the house, so Nikki has to hide the pups at home AND take them to school in secret…but the dogs are a lot harder work than they look – and messier too! Is Nikki’s plan going to end in a pawfully dorky disaster?
