Greg Heffley finds himself thrust into a new year and a new school where undersize weaklings share the corridors with kids who are taller, meaner and already shaving.
Desperate to prove his new found maturity, which only going up a grade can bring, Greg is happy to have his not-quite-so-cool sidekick, Rowley, along for the ride.
But when Rowley’s star starts to rise, Greg tries to use his best friend’s popularity to his own advantage.
Recorded in his diary with comic pictures and his very own words, this test of Greg and Rowley’s friendship unfolds with hilarious results.

Very funny. The diary format means it can be read in small doses.
Which is an encouragement for reluctant readers.
