Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Third Wheel (Book 7) by Jeff Kinney
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?
In this seventh entry in the best-selling Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, Greg Heffley continues to document his rites (and wrongs) of passage, this time by reflecting back on traumatic times before tweendom. By the time his account makes it from prenatal read-alouds to the present day, it’s clear Greg hasn’t evolved much over the years. His fans, however, will love and relate to him just the way he is—after all, who hasn’t had an imaginary friend, suffered embarrassing relatives, gotten lost in a corn maze, been forced to babysit against their will, survived take-your-kid-to-work day, been made to merengue in gym class, mistaken a zit for the chicken pox, or tried to find a date to a Valentine’s dance? What’s also unchanged, as Greg deals with these complications, is the book’s iconic visual style and spot-on hilarity. Although Master Heffley complains that he has no idea “what a guy needs to do to impress a girl these days,” his author sure knows exactly how to make readers of all stripes ecstatic. –Andrew Medlar
