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, his
obnoxious older one, or his well-meaning parents. But he knows enough to record
his daily thoughts in a diary—ahem, that is, a manly journal. In a unique novel
brimming with laugh-out-loud moments, Greg chronicles his first turbulent year
of middle school.
It’s a new school year, and Greg Heffley finds himself
thrust into middle school, where undersized weaklings share the hallways with
kids who are taller, meaner, and already shaving.
Greg is happy to have Rowley, his sidekick, along for the
ride. But when Rowley’s star starts to rise, Greg tries to use his best
friend’s newfound popularity to his own advantage, kicking off a chain of
events that will test their friendship in hilarious fashion.
Author and illustrator Jeff Kinney recalls the growing pains
of school life and introduces a new kind of hero who epitomizes the challenges
of being a kid. As Greg says in his diary, “Just don’t expect me to be all
‘Dear Diary’ this and ‘Dear Diary’ that.” Luckily for us, what Greg Heffley
says he won’t do and what he actually does are two very different things.
