December 12, 2020Drama and Divas on Ice Did you watch this video above of a SUPER TALENTED ice skater?! THIS is how Nikki Maxwell ice skates 😀!! But, ONLY in her IMAGINATION ☹️!! Unfortunately, in real life, Nikki is a HORRIBLE ice skater! The poor girl spent so much time falling down on the ice, she almost got FROSTBITE!! Anyway, since Nikki, is busy working on a big Holiday craft project that she’ll be sharing with you next week, she asked me to do this blog post about the book of the month, Dork Diaries Book 4: Tales From a Not-So-Graceful Ice Princess! This is Nikki’s December diary, and it’s jam-packed with a lot of excitement and drama. My grandparents own Fuzzy Friends animal shelter, so Nikki and I hang out there and help out whenever we can. But when my grandfather broke his leg and ended up in the hospital, Fuzzy Friends was seriously in danger of closing its doors. To help raise money to keep the shelter open, Nikki comes up with a BRILLIANT plan! She, Chloe, and Zoey sign-up to skate in a charity ice show. However, as I mentioned above, the major complication is that Nikki is a HORRIBLE ice skater. She doesn’t know how to skate. At ALL!! And, it doesn’t help matters that a world-famous celebrity skater and DIVA, Victoria Steel, is the director of the charity ice show. I try to help Nikki out, but the situation seems to be HOPELESS!
