Imagine what it would be like to be Gregory heffley. If I were him, I would probably run away and never to be seen again. Diary of a wimpy kid: hard luck made by Jeff Kinney is about a boy named Greg heffley that is the antagonist and protagonist of the story. The book starts at the heffley household at the one place where EVERYTHING goes wrong, the kitchen. The next day Greg finds out that his best friend rowley got a girlfriend. Which COMPLETELY ruins Gregory’s relationship with rowley. And even worse, (for Gregory) Greg's mom tries to help with the situation, which makes it even worse for Greg. Greg finds a magic 8 ball and uses what it says for good advice like on quizzes or whether to eat the veggies or the meat first. so I would consider this an ok book. I say this because it has a lot of plot twists and the setting to each chapter is just random.
