This book is AWESOME because it is written in the first person. I also like it because it has cartoon drawings!

Given the popularity of this book, I thought I'd better read it. The cartoons were cool and added a lot to the story. I liked Rowley's character a lot, but can't say the same for Greg. I guess it's the point, but he's got no backbone. He squirms out of every kind of situation, leaving others to get hurt so that he doesn't have to.
He does partially overcome this tragic character flaw, but I still don't really like him.
Greg Heffley is a bit like Malcolm in the Middle, but seems somehow...meaner.

Greg Heffley is back!

In The Ugly Truth, Greg Heffley has to deal with growing up. He’s always been in a hurry to grow up and become one of the cool kids, but growing up isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. He has to deal with the pressures of boy-girl parties, extra responsibilities, a maid who won’t do his washing and naps in his bed, his annoying brothers, and all of the awkward changes in his body. Greg thinks he can do all this without his best friend Rowley, but maybe it would be easier to deal with if he had his friend by his side. Greg does his best to stop growing up but also tries to act grown up around the cool kids so he can fit in.

If you enjoyed all the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, you’ll love the hilarious The Ugly Truth. If you haven’t tried them yet, what are you waiting for? Reserve your copy now.

First of all, I want to get something straight: this is a JOURNAL, not a diary. I know what is says on the cover but when Mom went out to buy this thing I SPECIFICALLY said to make sure it didn't say "diary" on it. So don't expect me to be all "dear diary this" and "dear diary that".

it's summer vacation, the weather’s great, and all the kids are having fun outside. So where’s Greg Heffley? Inside his house, playing video games with the shades drawn.

Greg, a self-confessed “indoor person,” is living out his ultimate summer fantasy: no responsibilities and no rules. But Greg’s mom has a different vision for an ideal summer . . . one packed with outdoor activities and “family togetherness.”

Whose vision will win out? Or will a new addition to the Heffley family change everything

Greg suddenly finds himself dealing with the pressures of boy-girl parties, increased responsibilities, and even the awkward changes that come with getting older—all without his best friend, Rowley, at his side. Can Greg make it through on his own? Or will he have to face the "ugly truth"?

Greg and Rowley's friendship had broke due to Greg terrorizing the kindergarteners by chasing them with worms, and Mrs. Irvine had accused Greg of terrorizing the kindergarteners and thought Greg is Rowley, so Rowley and Collin decided to hang out. In the end, Rowley ate the moldy cheese and Greg said he ate it. So, Rowley and Greg's friendship had been restored thanks to Greg stepping up for it.
