Diary of a Wimpy Kid-Tween

Rating: 5/5 Stars

About the Book: Greg Heffley is in middle school and being in middle school is not easy. When Greg's mom brings home a journal (it may say diary on the cover, but most definitely is NOT a diary!) Greg decides to record his adventures through words and cartoons. Greg tries to navigate life in middle school, survive his brothers, and avoid the curse of the cheese touch. A story for the underdog wimpy kid in all of us.

GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: This hilarious story started as an online comic on funbrain. If you haven't read this book yet, then rush to your library and bookstore and read it now! I guarantee you will be laughing within the first few pages. Dispite the middle school premise and lead character as a boy, this book is perfect for all ages, boys and girls. This is a perfect pick for those reluctant reader boys, since it blends comics into the story. More books are coming in the series and I can't wait to read more about Greg's silly adventures.
