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.

I couldn't see why this was in YA/Teen section in the library, cuz I'd rather call this a Children's book. It was funny though... Jeff is a good cartoonist, that made this funny at some points. This is a perfect children's book, I would bet that my little brother would love it.
I felt that it got a bit too silly with the nicknames... I don't recommend it to YA readers, but It's an easy read if you just want something to read while you're at a holiday or something.
There aren't any chapters in this book but it's divided into months and monday-sunday, just like a diary... It has really awesome drawings and it's really quick page turner... I didn't feel captivated with any of the characters. The story didn't have any remarkable ending either...

The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series is one of the funniest children's book series ever. The book itself is very well designed, with the front cover actually looking like a diary (The first line of the book: "Let me get something straight: this is a JOURNAL, not a diary.). The cartoons on the inside of the book are also very well drawn, with the pages being lined, just like in a journal. This is the first book in a quite long series by Jeff Kinney. The story is about Greg, a self-centred boy who thinks he's going to be famous, and his day-to-day adventures. This book is an excellent read and I urge you to go and get it RIGHT NOW!
