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 someoneβ€”anyone!β€”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?

        Diary of a Wimpy Kid The Third Wheel by Jeff Kinney is about a kid in middle school. He has two brothers, one in high school and a little brother. There is the Valentines dance. Greg can’t find anyone to go with so Greg asks his uncle for advice. His uncle tells him some things girls like. Greg finds a girl to go to the dance with. Her name is Abigail. His friend Rowley wants to come, but Rowley has the chicken pox. Greg’s solution is to cover Rowley up with clothes so no one would notice. Greg lets rowley come and abigail has a lot of fun with Rowley. Then Greg gets a little jealous and tries entertain Abigail. The grade level is grades 3-8. I like this book because it’s funny and a decent sized book. People that would like this book is people who like funny books and picture chapter books.

                      I think that this is a series that everyone should read. It's relatable, I think that everyone has had a sibling or friend or someone in their life that has ruined their life in some way. These books are great and should be a something everyone should read.
