Read The Book

Diary of A Wimpy Kid is one of the best books I've ever read. I would highly suggest that you read it too. It's a really good book. It's good for everybody.

I'm a 6th grade student- Glendale,Az - The Ugly Truth about The Ugly Truth

I'm going to talk about Diary Of A Wimpy Kid-The Ugly Truth. This book is by Jeff Kinney. I have read every one of the Diary of the Wimpy Kid books. This book is about a boy named Greg who goes through middle school. Greg is not a nice friend and does not want to be a kid anymore. He wants to grow up, but not face the changes on the way to become an adult. Rowerly was Greg's best friend and now is nerdy more than ever. Greg really wants a friend so at the end he and Rowerly are friends again. That's really the main part in the book. The setting is a lot of places. The main place is school and Greg's house. The minor setting is Greg's Gamie's house. Gamie is like a protagonist and minor character at the same time. Gamie is Greg's great- grandmother. This book is all over the place. It is not an organized book in my opinion. There is a rumor that there might be another Diary of a Wimpy Kid book coming up. I would highly recommend not buying it. I also think that the author Jeff Kinney, needs a break. I think he should also revise his stories. The reason I recommended the other Diary of a Wimpy Kid's is because they have a plot. You can find out more by reading their reviews. I would recommend for girls Dear Dumb Diary, that series actually has a plot, and a theme. Let's talk about Diary of a Wimpy Kid-The Ugly Truth's theme. There isn't one. Every book is supposed to have a theme or moral, this book doesn't. If you need the theme for this book then do not do it as a book report. I can not stress enough about NOT BUYING this book. DON'T BUY THIS BOOK. It has nothing to offer - it's not even funny. That is my review. Here is my tip to the author: take more time on your books. I can tell you rushed on this book. The ugly truth about this book is it's not a good book.
