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 got this book for my birthday, about 3 years ago and I can't even count how many times I've read it, it's so funny and it just put a smile on your face or adds a giggle to your day. :P It's really fun to read, though some may find it inappropriate as it deals with relationships, and what not. ~ Xeta <3

            I really like this book, and Diary Of A wimpy Kid series is one of the best series I have ever read. I like the series because there is pictures, so it is not just a big long boring book. It is really funny but I won't say to much so I don't spoil it.

                      This book is amazing! It's about Greg Heffley not having a date for the school dance, at his middle school. It has an amazing beginning, talking about things when he was a baby. This book isn't just about Greg not having a school date, it basically goes through his whole life, Jeff Kinney is an amazing author, and this book is amazing. Plus, it took me more than a week to read, and I'm a fast reader, so when you're buying this book, you aren't wasting your money!
