Jeff Kinney
217 pages
Published 2012 by Amulet books

The story: 
There's a boy called Greg Heffley who is very ordinary but he is weird
in different ways. One of them is that he has a diary.
So, there is a Valentines dance and his school and Greg are trying 
to find a date. His best friend Rowley Jefferson wants to go with 
him, but he doesn't have a date, either. Greg then worries he'll 
be left out in the cold on the big night. But then, Rowley is the 
odd man out instead of Greg.

Characters: Greg Heffley(hilarious), Rowley Jefferson(weird), Susan Heffley(mum and is embarrassing), 
Frank Heffley(dad and is annoying), Mr Jefferson and Abigail(Greg's date and is desperate because she wants a date so badly). 

Highlights:
When Greg wrote letters to the dance, to himself, so it would look
he was already taken, so girls would like him better. Also, the girls 
would gang round him because he has had lots letters from girls to
the dance.

Any weak bits:
There are no weak bits. The book was amazing.

Unputdownable:
I grabbed this book whenever the TV or radio came on and read it rather than playing on the WII or my iPad.
