Tales from a Not-So-Graceful Ice Princess by Rachel Renee Russell
My name is Simone, I’m 13 years old and I’m going into 8th grade. I enjoy skiing, playing volleyball, skateboarding and I have a love for fashion.
Tales from a Not- So- Graceful Ice Princess is the fourth book in the Dork Diaries series, and by far my favorite! This book is about growing up, dealing with mean girls and gaining confidence. Nikki, the main character, has to perform in an ice performance for her physical education class. Whoever wins the competition gets a prize of 3000 dollars to the charity of their choice.
Nikki’s crush named Brandon volunteers at their local animal shelter, which is in danger of closing. If the shelter closes something will happen to Brandon that she can’t let happen. Even though Nikki is not the best at ice skating and, has an arch-nemesis named Mackenzie who is trying to ruin it all for her, she needs to compete in the show.
Mackenzie somehow always knows how to do everything better than Nikki so she wants to compete against Nikki for the same charity try to win over Brandon.
I definitely recommend this book for middle schoolers because it’s a very easy read but super drama packed! I’ve read every single one of the Dork Diaries series and this one is definitely the best.
