BOOK NAME: Diary of a Wimpy Kid
AUTHOR: Jeff Kinney
If you want to read a funny book, check this book out of the library and start reading. It’s about a wimpy kid who is going into middle school. His name is Greg Heffley. His older brother, whose name is Rodrick, is going into high school and Greg has all of Rodrick’s old teachers. They think Greg is going to be just as much of a problem as his older brother.
As you might guess, this book is Greg’s diary and is arranged by date. It has neat writing, just like a kid’s writing, and lots of cartoon drawings. It covers the school year and ends in the summer. Since Greg is just starting middle school, he is trying to fit in and be popular. He and his friend Rowley try to hang with the cool kids and talk to them, but they just ignore him and walk away. One time, right after Christmas, Greg and Rowley are playing with a scooter and Rowley breaks his arm. The popular girls make a big deal over Rowley’s broken arm and even though Greg was there he gets ignored like usual.
He also doesn’t get much help from the teachers because they embarrass him because they think he’s going be a troublemaker like his brother. But Greg is a good student and really good in class.
I think you should read this book because it has lot of funny parts that Greg and Rowley do together in their 6th grade year to fit in. It also shows that the best way to fit in to be yourself.
