Overview


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?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Seven books into the bestselling Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, Kinney isn't messing with a good thing, and he continues to mine middle-school life for comedic gold. He doesn't appear to be in danger of running out of material, either, covering everything from school elections and chocolate bar fundraisers (" lot of families like mine had to write a check to the school just to cover the cost of the candy bars their children ate," Greg says. "It's possible that nobody sold a single candy bar") to the traumas of "family-style" restaurants and Bring Your Child to Work Day. Greg even gives readers a glimpse of his (much) younger years, including his memories of life in the womb ("fter being hit by the cold air the blinding lights of the delivery room, I wish I'd just stayed put"). Fans will continue to enjoy Greg's ongoing efforts to come out on top, whether trying to secure a private bathroom stall at school or a date for the Valentine's Day dance. Ages 8–12. Agent: Sylvie Rabineau, RWSG Agency. (Nov.)
Children's Literature - Anne Pechnyo
Things are changing quickly for Greg Heffley! First, his Uncle Gary finds himself broke, jobless, and moving onto the Hefley's couch. Next, Greg's best friend, Rowley, is elected to the student council as Social Chairperson. Then, Greg has to find himself a date to the school's Valentine's Day dance! To make matters worse, the chickenpox are going around the school. As is typical life for Greg, nothing seems to go without embarrassment. When Greg thinks he has found a date for the big dance, unexpected twists leave him wondering if he will be lucky in love or left standing by the wall. The seventh book in the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" series, this newest installation will not disappoint Kinney's loyal fans. Readers are left laughing at Greg's first person diary entries detailing each event as well as the accompanying stick-figure cartoons. As with the other titles in this series, Kinney offers enough information at the beginning of the book to catch any reader up, whether this is the reader's first Wimpy Kid experience or their seventh.

Ok to all you haters out there, saying that this book only has 12 pages, it is because you have a FREE SAMPLE. Also, if you were to cheap to not get a nook tablet/color, then that is your fault. This is a absolutly fantastic book in my opinion, but you haters obviously are not thinking before posting.
