                      Jeff kinney's diary of a wimpy kid was the best diary book I've read. First rowley ditches Greg and befriends a girl Abigail, after finding out its impossible to get rowley back. Greg learns to trust a magic 8 ball to help him with his troubles until the ball started causing trouble for Greg itself. When rowley and Abigail got voted for cutest couple category at school Greg threw the magic 8 ball away and worked on his science project instead. After he turned in his silence project the magic 8 ball actually owed Greg for the things that happened to him, so soon Greg got rowley back again.
