Summary from Amazon UK:
Ever since she started at her posh private school Nikki Maxwell has been doing everything she can to keep everyone from learning the truth - that she's there on scholarship in exchange for her Dad working as the school's exterminator. But now it looks like her secret might be about to come out and Nikki's willing to go to any zany and wacky length to prevent that from happening. And when a major talent competition is announced with a school scholarship being the top prize the timing seems perfect! Now Nikki can have fun singing and dancing with her friends and compete to finally stop worrying about ruining what little reputation she has if people find out that she only attends Westchester because of her dad's embarrassing job. But as usual for Nikki nothing is ever as simple as it seems...
I love this series. It's so funny and light, and is perfect for reading between all my YA. I laugh out loud at Rachel Renee Russell's writing and illustrations, and Nikki Maxwell is a brilliant character. I look forward to these books being published, cos they're basically just ace. 5 months to go!
