This is a very extraordinary book. The main character is Gregory. His an very funny kid and a huge troublemaker . He sometimes gets detention at school.  In detention he gets depressed thinking about himself.

I recommend this book to people who like to read comic books and people who like funny stories. I think that everyone between 7-up should enjoy this book.

The fifth in the series, this book has everything; wit, humour and the dramas of growing up. Jeff Kinney has thought of everything whilst writing this book, therefore creating a masterpiece. In this book, Greg Heffley finds his own way in the world, and has plenty of fun whilst doing it. This is a series of which appeals to every age between children and teens, which is what makes it so amazing.
