Publisher's Summary

Acclaimed debut author Jeff Kinney brilliantly re-creates the typical humor and logic of middle-school boys sidling into adolescence. Sixth grader Greg Heffley doesn't understand his annoying younger brother, obnoxious older one, or well-meaning parents. But he knows enough to record his daily thoughts in a manly journal - not some girly diary. In a unique novel brimming with laugh-out-loud moments, Greg chronicles his first turbulent year of middle school.

JUICE

BACK UP FRIENDS
I guess I am hard to please? I don't like a story where the main character is perfect, but this character seems a little more selfish then the average. His motivation seems to be, to get away with what ever he can, as long as it suits his own needs. I don't know if the author is expecting the reader to see the wrong and understand what the Wimpy Kid does not, or what? He lets his best friend take the rap for something he did. He does not want to sweat?What middle school kid worries about sweating? Two characters use back up friends to make the other jealous, with no concern about the back friends' feelings.

It is not all bad, don't get that impression. There are some parts that are laugh out loud funny. My favorite parts were the thank you notes and the mother punishing a child for having a magazine with a scantly clad woman on the cover. Middle School life seems very realistic. The parents are funny and are good, except I did not understand why they let there kid out past 10:30 on a weekend night, it didn't chive with how they were portrayed in the rest of the book.

I thought the narrator was very good, listen to the sample to see what you think.

You need the cartoons!

My kids love this book, so we got it as an audiobook for a car trip. The trouble is that the cartoons are an integral part of the story. Without them, you lose some of the humor. It would be perfect for reading along, if your kids already have the book, but there is definitely something missing when you just listen to the audiobook without the visuals.
