The main characters of the book are Greg Heffley, Rowley Jefferson, Rodrick Heffley, Susan Heffley, and Frank Heffley. The setting of the book mostly takes place in the Heffley house and in Westmore Middle School, Greg's middle school. In the beginning of the book Greg introduces himself and gets started in middle school. In the middle Greg has bad luck. In the end Greg's luck returns a little bit.

My Opinion

I liked this book because of how it showed how much Greg's life was shifting from good to bad. I do not have any suggestions for making this book better. It is really up there in good books.


Diary of a Wimpy Kid reminds me of Dork Diaries because Greg and the girl both have diaries and they both are in middle school. I knew a person that was wimpy and also had a "journal".


I would recommend this to a friend because this book is awesome, if you like funny books. Diary of a Wimpy kid is the book for you.
