"It's going to be a WIMPY YEAR!"
4 stars"

Greg is plunked into middle school by well-meaning parents. But, alas fir Greg, there are a whole lot of problems. Fregley is the kid halfway up the street, always hanging out in his front yard when Greg goes to visit his best friend Rowley, who is a bit of a nutcase too. Then there's the cheese, and the cheese touch. Will Greg stay out of trouble, survive a few weeks without his beloved video games, and stay out of the clutches of the Halloween bullies who are going to make someone eat the ------? Stay tuned


Greg Heffley finds himself thrust into a new year and a new school where undersize weaklings share the corridors with kids who are taller, meaner and already shaving. Desperate to prove his new found maturity, which only going up a grade can bring, Greg is happy to have his not-quite-so-cool sidekick, Rowley, along for the ride. But when Rowley's star starts to rise, Greg tries to use his best friend's popularity to his own advantage. Recorded in his diary with comic pictures and his very own words, this test of Greg and Rowley's friendship unfolds with hilarious results.
