Diary of a Wimpy Kid, The Last Straw

Quote: “I’m basically one of the best people I know.”


Blurb: You know how you’re supposed to come up with a list of “resolutions” at the beginning of the year to try to make yourself a better person? Well, the problem is, it’s not easy for me to think of ways to improve myself because I’m pretty much one of the best people I know.


But Greg’s dad has other ideas. He wants Greg to change his wimpy ways, toughen up and enlist in other “manly” endeavors. And when he threatens to send Greg to military academy, Greg realizes he has to shape up… or get shipped out.


Review: This is the third, yet another great book in the series. Gregory hits many embarrassing moments on his rollercoaster of being a teenager. I found this book was just a little bit under the first two books, but enjoyed it none the less. The humor was priceless and is definitely a non-stop funny series. I recommend all 3 of the books reviewed.
