Greg Heffley is not willing to be the odd man out.

A dance at Greg's middle school has everyone scrambling to find a partner, and Greg is determined not to be left by the wayside. So he concocts a desperate plan to find someone—anyone!—to go with on the big night.

But Greg's schemes go hilariously awry, and his only option is to attend the dance with his best friend, Rowley Jefferson, and a female classmate as a "group of friends." But the night is long, and anything can happen along the way. Who will arrive at the dance triumphantly, and who will end up being the third wheel?

    I didn't like this book, Jeff Kinney could improve more on this... The story was complicated because it didn't make sense ...

                    Have you ever been to middle school yet? Greg is a non athletic middle school boy stuck with a bunch of morons, and he needs to find out a partner for valentine's dance. He doesn’t wanna be left out. Greg finally finds a partner to go with, will he ruin it? This book is great. One reason is that is very easy to read. Jeff Kinney used speech bubbles so it could be more like a comic. Another reason is its very very funny. The illustrations make me lol!!! You should definitely read this book now!

                      Are you a wimpy kid. Greg is a average middle school wimp but he is more intelligent than he might look. In this story Greg want’s to go to the valentine’s dance. The problem is that Greg is afraid he might get the chicken pox from Rowley and not be able to go to the dance. Greg will do anything to get to the dance. I think this is a really good book, it is a funny and humorous book. One reason is that Greg could not find a date for the valentine's dance. My next reason is because when he was little his mom did not let him crawl a lot so in preschool he was way behind the others. I think you should read this book right now.
