                Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Winpy Kid books are amazing, and his most recent one is fantastic. Greg is a stubborn and very self absorbed person, and his life is quite interesting. In this book, Greg's friend Rowley gets a girl - Abigail Brown. Greg learns to trust Lucky-8-Balls, and Greg strikes it rich! Definitely the most interesting diary ever.
