Story: In Jeff Kinney's fifth "novel in cartoons," middle school student Greg Haffley continues the hilarious saga of his life. “Greg finds himself dealing with the pressures of boy-girl parties, increased responsibilities, and the awkward changes that come with getting older – all without his best friend, Rowley, at his side. Can Greg make it through on his own? Or will he have to face the ‘ugly truth’?” (Source: ABRAMS, Amulet Books) For more information, read my review of Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth.
