    i have this book so let me give you the’s a very nice book .in it at the start of the book Greg tells u whatever happened in his life in his mother’s tummy and when he was a 1 month baby and forward and the next half of the book says how he struggled to go in a valentine’s day dance which is held in his school gym but its ruined by some senior citizens who came for a discussion on building an senior citizen center so half of the gym goes to them.after they finished their discussion they come over to the other side where the dance is going on and eat the strawberries which were used for dipping in the chocolate fountain but leave that the important part is about greg and his is the part everyone wants to know about. ok so, greg goes with someone who is not having a date too rowley helped greg find her, her name is abigail and the one who is lucky in love is…….. ROWLEY

    the next part of my review will soon come watch out for other reviews in diary of a wimpy kid books

    I just finished reading Diary of a Wimpy kid: The Third Wheel by Jeff Kinney. This book is hilarious and romantic all at the same time. It starts out In an ordinary life in middle school and then to really gets to the point. Greg (the main character) has been trying to work up the nerve to ask out his biggest crush Holly Hills to the dance, but Greg’s WAY to nervous to ask her out and the only problem is…..... well, If you want to know what happens after that I can’t tell you so I guess your gonna have to find out.

    This book was absolutely jocular and entertaining. I could read this again and again! I was planning to read this book slowly but ended up finishing it in up to 20 minutes! I have read all of the books so far and hopefully there will be more.

    I have given this book a 5 star rating because it got me engrossed in it the whole way through!

    The Third Wheel is a new book that has come out recently. Once again, Greg is sick and tired of being in middle school. When a Valentines dance comes up, he rushes to find a date. Will he be lucky or will his friend Rowley get a shot at love?

  56. buzz13
    on 4 March 2013

    Not as exciting as the other books, because it is based on one adventure instead of lots of little adventures like the other ones. All he is trying to do is get a girlfriend. Still good to find out what is happening to Greg.

    A little disappointing, as this book was very short. Around half of the book is about Greg going to the disco, which happens in just one night; this book is supposed to be about Greg’s WHOLE YEAR! Also, I didn’t find this book as funny as some of the previous ones, but maybe my expectations were too high. Daisy.

    Look inside Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Third Wheel Its cool.

    Love is in the air, but what does that mean for Greg? A Valentine’s Day dance at school has turned the Wimpy Kid’s world upside down! As Greg scrambles to find a date, he’s worried he’ll be left out in the cold on the big night. The only small consolation is that his best friend, Rowley, doesn’t have any prospects either. Greg’s rotten luck seems to be improving when a chance twist gives him a partner for the dance, leaving Rowley the odd man out. But a lot can happen in one night, and in the end, you never know who’s going to be lucky in love… The trials and torments of the Wimpy Kid’s life get an even funnier twist as he discovers the toe-curling horrors of school dances and dating disasters.
