Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Author: Jeff Kinney

First line: First of all, let me get something straight: this is a JOURNAL, not a diary.

Why you should read this book: Greg Heffley has middle school all figured out: keep your head down when there are bullies around, don’t get caught in the middle of a group of girls no matter how hot they are, and don’t get stuck with the cheese touch. Greg knows he’s much cooler than his parents, his brothers, or his best friend, and now he just has to wait for the rest of the world to understand that, too. If it weren’t for all the moron kids, clueless relatives, mean teenagers, and unfair teachers, Greg would be a lot happier, but things aren't always fair in this popular novel-in-cartoons.

Why you shouldn’t read this book: Honesty is your benchmark.
