Nikki Maxwell's love life is finally looking up. Brandon, who she's been crushing on, like, forever, has asked her on an almost-date. SQUEE!
But when Brandon starts acting weirdly, Nikki's worried that he doesn't like her after all...
And with a special dance coming up where the girls ask the boys, Nikki wants to invite Brandon, but what if he says no - urgh, major cringe! Will Nikki find the courage to ask Brandon to the dance, or will she be left at home like a true Dork-arella?
Rachel Renee Russell is a lawyer who prefers writing children's books to legal briefs (mainly because books are a lot more fun and pyjamas and bunny slippers aren't allowed in court). She has raised two daughters and lived to tell about it. Rachel lives in northern Virginia with a spoiled pet Yorkie who terrorises her daily by climing on top of her computer and pelting her with stuffed animals while she writes. And, yes, Rachel considers herself a total Dork.
