Synopsis

Acclaimed debut author Jeff Kinney brilliantly re-creates the typical humor and logic of middle school boys sidling into adolescence.

Sixth grader Greg Heffley doesn’t understand his annoying younger brother, obnoxious older one, or well-meaning parents. But he knows enough to record his daily thoughts in a manly journal―not some girly diary. In a unique novel brimming with laugh-out-loud moments, Greg chronicles his first turbulent year of middle school.

This book was very good. My favourite character has to be Greg...I recommend this book to readers around 10-13 who enjoy reading as it is quite easy to read, but it has some challenging words as well. I give this a big 5/5 because I enjoyed reading it so much.

...these books have one thing in common: they are all incredibly boring. They are funny, in some parts, and good when you want a light, humorous read, but they are all pretty much the same.
