Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth
     written by Jeff Kinney

The hottest book at our Book Fair this fall wasn't even physically at the Book Fair! It hadn't been released yet...It was Diary of a Wimpy Kid...The Ugly Truth! Available as a pre-sale order we happily received orders for a case and a half of the books, with eager students waiting for their copy to be "Specially Delivered" to them in their class on release day. SSR (Silent Sustained Reading) was truly silent that day in our tween classrooms where everyone was devouring the book as quickly as possible.

In this installment of the Wimpy Kid Greg and his best friend Rowley are no longer best friends, at least for the time being. And Greg faces the "Ugly Truth" without his friend at his side for most of the book. He considers a replacement friend for Rowley, and questions why everyone seems to be having a better time in middle school than he is. His mom goes back to school which affects his home life, Advanced Health and Family Life is "disgusting" (Greg's words), with ancient movies to get through, that all ages can identify with.

There's a spokesperson contest, a family member's engagement and wedding to attend, boy/girl parties, showers at gym, a grown up's dentist and headgear to possibly "ruin Greg's life," the school Lock IN, and more!

As usual, these day to day experiences of growing up are full of fun, laughs, and silliness to make every reader smile and laugh out loud, whatever their age!  Check out your copy today!

ISBN: 978-0-8109-9793-6
