Book Comparison

The Dork Diaries is similar to The Bully because, the main characters move to the school they are at in the book. They don't quite fit in ether. At the end of the first book of both series they have a bunch of friends. They both have a school wide bully too. They differ because the main character Nikki doesn't stand up to the bully (Mackenzie) Darrel stands up to Tyre.
