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?

“Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Third Wheel” is a young adult novel by Jeff Kinney which follows the misadventures of middle-schooler Greg Heffley as he attempts to adjust to his Uncle Gary moving in, and finding a date for the Valentine's Day Dance. It is the seventh installment in the “Wimpy Kid” series by Kinney. Poor Greg....

There is a dance coming up at Gregory (Greg) Heffley's school, and Greg needs to find a date. He does not want to be the only one there without a date. However, things don't work out, and it looks like he's going with his best friend, Rowley. However, there is also a girl going with them. Who will be the third wheel? Overall, I thought this book was funny. I recommend this book to people who enjoy other Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, or enjoy the Dork Diaries series. I rate this book 5/5.

i thought that this was online reading ._.

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
