SOOOO much better than the last two. It's still a cliched rip-off of the ever-popular Battle of the Bands prize solves all protagonist's problems, but Nikki is far more likable in this one. ( )

These books are literally so cute! I didn't expect to enjoy them so much, and was very surprised at how involved I became with the story. I read them when I was younger but I was looking back over them the other day and still find them very adorable. Very neat read! ( )

This book is about a girl named Nikki and she is trying out for the talent show. Along the way she has to deal with crush problems, mean girls, and a crazy family. Her month starts off with having to watch her sister, Brianna, at the mall and then her sister goes into the fountain in search for money and they get enough money to go to a pizza place. While they are there they get invited to go up on stage and sing the place's theme song and while they are there the popular mean girl, MacKinzie, is there with her little sister and friends also and get a video of them dancing. Then Nikki has a problem with the tuition bill she gets for school since her dad "can't" work and the only way to pay the tuition off is to win the talent show. There is only on problem, Mackinzie is out to ruin Nikki's life and her chances with winning the talent show. At the end of the show the host invited Nikki and her band to be on the live show.

This book is amazing and it shows the life of a teen. Teens have to go through drama, family problems, and so much more. Rachel Renee Russell is able to put all of that in one series. This book keeps you waiting for more and rolling on the floor laughing. If the words won't keep you laughing the pictures sure will. The pictures and illustrations look like a teen drawled them and they go perfectly with the text. If Rachel Renae Russell writes another book, I want to be one of the first to read, her books are just that good. ( )

One of Nikki's best traits is that she is a good friend who tries to help as much as she can. That is one of the best lessons, aside from handling bullies, that kids will learn through this book (series). ( )
