    The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger (BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: Diary of a Wimpy Kid has a lot more drawings, but both of these laugh-out-loud books are made even funnier by their cartoon illustrations. Both books also have great characters (from seriously quirky to utterly normal) who have realistic middle-school embarrassments, problems--and victories.… (more)

This was a very engaging book. The stick figure illustrations makes the reader believe that they are actually ready the diary of elementary/middle school child. The story is written in first person. The main character is young and the language in the book reflects that. The big idea in this book is to enjoy being young. Growing up is not as special as it seems. ( )

Laughed 'til it hurt, again. Greg hasn't changed at all, but I don't know how long these can go on--middle school is only so many years.....

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; Greg has pushed it too far this time in terms of being mean to Rowley and Rowley’s parents do not want their son to befriend Greg.
Can Greg make it on his own or will he have to face the 'ugly truth' that he is in fact still very juvenile and that others are growing up around him. Will Greg be prepared to grow up and be responsible and respectful. ( )

So this book is about Greg Heffley and his friend Rowley Jefferson are in a big fight and Greg is trying to get his friendship back together but next thing you know Rowley has a new friend and greg is trying to find a new friend but all the other kids are taken. Greg has looked all around the school and his neiborhood to find a new friend but he heard about two of these other boys and their names are Christopher and Tyson but he has heard too many things about those two boys he doesn't want to here about. So Rowley has a new friend but he doesn't know that his parents are paying this teenager to play outside with him or whatever he wants to do and Rowley doesn't even know about it. The teenager is part of a Cool Brian club where wholesome mentors for boys growing up. One day Rowely's old teenager was on a break and a new teen was there and Rowley didn't even know that a new teen was playing football with him. At lunch Greg was sitting at the lunch table and this guy named Bryce Anderson and a few of his friends were playing a trick on another kid and he said Oh no there is a high pitched sound where is that sound coming from, and he said got all of you guys there was no high pitched noice.
