''Greg Heffley finds himself thrust into middle school, where undersized weaklings share the hallways with kids who are taller, meaner, and already shaving.''- This book is the start of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. It introduces you to Gregory (Greg) Heffley, his family, and his best friend, Rowley. Greg's mom buys him a journal, so he turns it into his diary where he explains his daily troubles, ranging from his problems at school, to troubles at his house. This book is hilarious, and I recommend it to people who enjoy the Dork Diaries series, and also enjoy other books written by Jeff Kinney. I rate it 5/5. I recommend it to elementary and middle schoolers.
