Diary of a Wimpy Kid - The Third Wheel Review and Giveaway



Jeff Kinney is back with another Diary of a Wimpy Kid book and this time. Love is in the air—but what does that mean for Greg Heffley?

A Valentine’s Day dance at Greg’s middle school has turned his 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. His best friend, Rowley, doesn’t have any prospects either, but that’s a small consolation.
An unexpected twist gives Greg a partner for the dance and leaves 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.

Our Thoughts:  My boys have been long time fans of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books and the oldest of Los Tres Amigos was thrilled to be among the first of his friends to have the latest book in the series.  I love to read and I'm sure my love of reading comes from my mom, who is an avid reader and now the tradition continues in my kids.  All of them are avid readers and it's always nice to peek in their bedroom and see them engrossed in a book.  It's a beautiful thing.

Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid never disappoints.  All of my boys are fans and most of their friends are fans.  The series is often among the first books to sell out during the annual book sale at the kids' school.  

I'm also glad to see the series is now available in e-books as Wimp-E-Books.
