    I read this book because I like all "diary of a wimpy kid" books.it was quite extraordinarily great I never remembered that Greg and the other characters are made up not only because it isn't in third person also because it is almost real you should read it. So real!

      I thought this book was very funny well one reason I thought it was funny was that near the end of the book Greg had to have " The talk ", with his Gammie wich he was totally not looking forword to it but then when he got in the room and started talking to his Gammie.He thought it would actaully be good to have some time before he would become a man. He was happy he had some time before he would become a man because he saw some pictures of his Dad, his Uncle Gary and his Uncle Joe ( they didn't look so good) so Greg didn't want to look bad before high school.
