I first heard of Dork Diaries watching the CBS morning news in October of this year. I was so impressed with Rachel Renee Russell, the author. Her daughters Niki and Erin were bullied in middle school. This is the foundation from which she decided to launch the Dork Diaries series. They were different and unique in their own way.
The characters of Dork Diaries are diverse in ethnicity and personal character. One important aspect of the Dork Diaries series, is it crosses all boundaries and unites girls of all ethnicities. Most importantly, it is empowering young girls to love their inner dorkiness and have confidence in themselves even if you are not like others. The fans that follow the series are of all ethnicities and personalities.
I sure wish Dork Diaries was around when I was growing up. I was very independent growing up. People will single you out when you don’t follow them and stand your own ground. As a young girl growing up my grandmother would always tell me to treat others the way you want to be treated. Niki and Erin feel the same way.
