Greg Heffley is just hoping to get by in middle school, but it's not easy. Between trying to impress Holly Hills, avoid his older brother Rodrick, and pull up his grades, Greg has his hands full. To top it off, Greg's dad is on a mission to make Greg more "manly" and he thinks military school might be just the attitude adjustment Greg needs. So Greg tries to shape up, making his New Year's resolution to help others improve. But when his brand of truthful advice, such as "Dear James, you smell," doesn't go over so well, Greg is afraid he might be shipping out.

A brief summary of this book is that Greg is trying out new sports and he hates it, he tells his dad that he wanna quit and he is not doing this anymore. another scene was when he was when he had made up his new year resolutions. How I feel about this book is that I would read this book over and over again it is very funny and interesting. Also, this book has a lot of foreshadowing and how the book would give away hints of what is going to happen in a certain scene. The audience that would enjoy this book is the people who would like to read about someone's funny life story and pictures. A particular group that would like to read the book is the people who like to laugh while they are reading. See me I like to read funny books and books that make me laugh. that age group is really for everyone in my opinion. like my little brother reads this book and he is only 10 years old. This book is just a great book and you will enjoy reading this.

I just want to say I loveeeeeeeeeeee every single book of the Diary of the wimpy kids and I would most definitely recommend it to every single person out there, from kids to adults to seniors. It is an easy/funny book to read and let me warn you that if you start reading one page, you want to read the whole book and if you read the whole book, you want to read the whole series. Fortunately, this happened to me:) Have fun reading all the Diary of the Wimpy Kid books.

The Diary Of A Wimpy Kid book is so funny! I like all the characters but I like Greg the most. My favourite part of the book is when Greg plays soccer but he sits down and plays in the dandelions instead. I also like when the teachers dance to the hokey pokey in the gym for the Valentine's Day dance. I would give this book 4.5/5.
