Greg enters a new school year and just wants to forget about Summer vacation. He especially wants to forget one thing that happened, but his brother won't let him forget it.Once again we are reading about Greg's crazy life. Greg is still the same, still a bit selfish and only worries about himself. But his older brother Rodrick is definitely much worse. And his younger brother Manny tells on him all the time. His parents are . . . . Different, I suppose is a good word. But Greg and his family aren't all bad. They just have flaws and I think that's good to see in a book. And this book is still very funny. So much stuff happens in it and you really can't wait to turn the page and see what happens next. Can't wait to read the rest of the books.
