Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Sixth grader Greg records his middle school experiences in this funny, often realistic journal. And as Greg points out, this is definitely a journal, not a diary! Tag along as he deals with an older, wanna-be-rock-star brother, a younger can-do-no-wrong brother and a best friend who surprisingly passes him up on the popularity ladder. Greg is like many 6th grade boys who think about girls, ALOT, find clever ways to avoid all forms of work, and day dream about life after the dreaded middle school. Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney is a quick read with amusing illustrations that every middle-schooler will enjoy. FYI--Look for this movie in theaters March 19th and the Borders in Schaumburg will host a meet & greet with the author and cast on March 10th at 7pm but you first must get a wristband at the store starting at 9am.
