Greg Heffley has always been in a hurry to grow up. But is getting older really it's cracked up to be?
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'?
There is no doubt that the endearing escapades of the ever self-absorbed Greg Heffley and his motley band of friends has got all his fans hanging out for the next instalment. Following on from the huge success of books 1-4, the DIY diary, the movie diary and the film itself, book number five will suck us all in with glee and giggles.
