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?

            This book is amazing! It's about Greg Heffley not having a date for the school dance, at his middle school. It has an amazing beginning, talking about things when he was a baby. This book isn't just about Greg not having a school date, it basically goes through his whole life, Jeff Kinney is an amazing author, and this book is amazing. Plus, it took me more than a week to read, and I'm a fast reader, so when you're buying this book, you aren't wasting your money!

                  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.
