If you like hilarious books you need to read Diary of a Wimpy kid: Big Shot, by jeff kinney. I give that book a five star because it is funny. I really like all the details that the author gives. Another reason is that I like the picture it shows. Like the description of everything in the whole book. I also liked when Greg made a cool shot and everyone tried to do it but could not make it in. But they had a big game coming. Did they win or not find out in the book. Hope you enjoyed the book because I did.

I don't like this.... I am more into manga especially My Hero Academia!

Ok so its a really good book its about Greg heffely and his "wimpy" sports career.

I got through like 70 pages of it at Costco--where I was waiting in line. It's so funny. I haven't read Diary of a Wimpy Kid in a while.

Greg isn't a lot of things. He isn't a nerd, a jerk, or a dork. But most of all, Greg isn't an athlete. So when the school announces that whoever wins the field day competition will get a day off, Greg isn't sure if he will win. And after losing terribly, Greg is even more convinced that he shouldn't play sports. But when his mom says that he needs to be part of a sports team, Greg is forced to try out for the school basketball team. He is convinced he will lose, but he makes it anyway, along with a lot of bad players. Now, they will have to play for the whole season. Will it be like those movies, where the underdogs win? Or will it be like real life, where the underdogs lose? I really enjoy the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series because some of the scenes make me laugh out loud. But also, I like how the author sounds exactly like a middle school kid. This book is great for people who like funny stories about school.

I just started it !

Greg has to face many sport challenges as he talks about his Preschool ⚽ team and his middle school 🏀 team read (Diary of a wimpy kid "Big Shot") to find out more.

I really like the Diary of a wimpy, books, but I only have two books in real life and I read pdfs of the Diary of a wimpy kid series. I really want to read it cause I don't want to it in pdf form.

Can't wait to read this book!!!
