Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney
In book one of this debut series, Greg is happy to have Rowley, his sidekick, along for the ride. But when Rowley's star starts to rise, Greg tries to use his best friend's newfound popularity to his own advantage, kicking off a chain of events that will test their friendship in hilarious fashion.
Review: So... I don't think I liked it? I mean, it's realistic, but hopefully not too realistic? Because Greg is pretty much a jerk. Like, super obnoxious. (So basically, a 13-year-old boy.) He lies to his parents, lets his friend get in trouble for something he did, refuses to own up for ANYTHING he does wrong, and is incredibly selfish at all times. Are all 13-year-old boys like that? (Oh my gosh... are all 13-year-olds like that? As a new mother, I'm officially worried about 13 years from now...)
Confession: I did like the drawings. They're pretty funny.
