Whatever you do, don’t ask Greg Heffley how he spent his summer vacation, because he definitely doesn’t want to talk about it.

As Greg enters the new school year, he’s eager to put the past three months behind him . . . and one event in particular. Unfortunately for Greg, his older brother, Rodrick, knows all about the incident Greg wants to keep under wraps. But secrets have a way of getting out . . . especially when a diary is involved.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules chronicles Greg’s attempts to navigate the hazards of middle school, impress the girls, steer clear of the school talent show, and most important, keep his secret safe.
The highly anticipated sequel to the #1 New York Times bestselling book!

    This is the second book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and It's my favorite book in the whole series. Rodrick is Greg's older brother, and he is a bad influence, but it's like Greg knows that. Rodrick ends up locking his brothwer in his basement, and more. I loved this book, and I think you would too.

      Rodrick rules / by Jeff Kinney. Greg Heffley tells about his summer vacation and his attempts to steer clear of trouble when he returns to middle school and tries to keep his older brother Rodrick from telling everyone about Greg's most humiliating experience of the summer. Brothers can be annoying!

          Rodrick Rules is about Gregory (Greg) Heffley's troubles with his brother, Rodrick. Rodrick throws a party when Greg's parents go away for a little bit, and he locks Greg in the basement. Greg knows they are going to get in trouble. Not only that, but Rodrick knows about the secret Greg is trying to hide. Overall, I think that this book was really funny, and it showed the troubles Greg has with his brother, Rodrick. I recommend this book to people who enjoy other Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. I rate this book 5/5.

            A slightly sad and awkward book in some and many parts of itself, Rodrick is portrayed as rude and pesky and very very annoying until the end of this book...

                      It was a really good book, similar to the 1st. I didn't like it as much as the original because the original talked about a lot of different things, however, as its name implies, has a lot to do about his brother Rodrick. It was still really good though and I would definitely recommend it.
