Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney

Diary of a Wimpy KidGreg Heffley is keeping a journal of his first year in middle school to make his mother happy. He is a fountain of information about the adolescent boy’s view of the world and how to deal with its problems and challenges. He is quickly learning his way around the pitfalls of middle school. Unfortunately, his friend Rowley isn’t as fast a study. Greg is a funny guy with an honesty that is hilarious as well as eye-opening. From avoiding the Cheese touch, which can totally ruin a person’s social life, to becoming a special crossing guard in order to gain privileges in the school cafeteria, Greg is always striving to have fun and gain influence especially with the girls. You will cheer for his successes, such as avoiding the older bullies at Halloween and be appalled at his lack of sensitivity, as when he lets Rowley take the rap for scaring the children he is supposed to be walking home for lunch. You will want to hear more about Greg Heffley and his escapades because he is FUNNY! The expressive cartoons add to the fun.
