Story: According to author and illustrator Jeff Kinney, “As a writer, there’s something wickedly satisfying about putting Greg Heffley under duress, and in the eighth book, Greg suffers a multitude of indignities. But this time around he has a secret weapon against the slings and arrows of middle school.” (Source: Abrams 8/8/13 media release) Middle school is not much fun since Greg has been dumped by his best friend, Rowley, and he's having trouble making new friends. Will Greg's life be better if he depends on the roll of dice for the answers to what he should do?
