Greg is having some hard luck. Rowley ditched him for a girlfriend and he's not having any luck finding new friends.
Greg finds a magic 8 and lets it decide for him, hoping for some good luck finally.
I was a little worried due to the reviews I've read saying this is the last book in the series. I've done a lot of checking on Google and so far, haven't found anything that says it is the final book. So, I am going to assume there are more books yet to come.
For me, this book was laugh out loud funny like some of the other books in the series. However, it was still enjoyable and I really enjoyed when Greg spent some time in his mom's closet. To say the least, it was interesting what he found in there. I loved his Body Blankie. Just too funny.
It seems to me that Greg may have grown up a little bit. Not a lot, but just a little and I really enjoyed seeing that.
I will be looking forward to the next release in the series.
