Jeff Kinney's 8th book of this hilarious and highly successful series, and Greg Heffley and his friends now have a whole new set of adventures.

Greg Heffley's on a losing streak. His best friend, Rowley Jefferson, has ditched him, and finding new friends in middle school is proving to be a tough task. To change his fortunes, Greg decides to take a leap of faith and turn his decisions over to chance. Will a roll of the dice turn things around, or is Greg's life destined to be just another hard-luck story?

Comical Autobiography

A lot of humour included in this 'novel' and the main character is a very - what I would call- ordinary though nevertheless, his adventures are 'action - packed' and extremely comical. Students who feel they can't draw as well might like to copy the simply fabulous figures. This is a brilliant book, I have read it over and over again.
