Love is in the air!!!! A Valentine's Day dance at Greg's middle school has turned his world upside down. As Greg scrambles to find a date, he's worried he'll be left out in the cold on the big night. His best friend, Rowley, doesn't have any prospects either, but that's the small consolation. ( )

This book is funny in that it brings back the memories of when you are at school and trying to impress a girl. The school dance is coming up and Greg does not want to be the odd one out with out a date. This is typical of how a school kid would feel.
Greg is desperate to find someone and ends up inviting a girl called Abigail. Aiming to impress her he organizes Rowley’s dad to drive them (on the pretence that he is a chauffeur) to the dance and in doing so has to have Rowley along as well. By the end of the night Abigail is more impressed with Rowley than Greg and a budding romance begins, much to the annoyance of Greg who feels like a third wheel. This is an enjoyable book as I could relate to how Greg felt attending his first school dance. ( )

This book was cute. Many kids can connect to Greg. If you read the series, you can see how unlucky Greg's life is. I can relate to Greg alot so this book was awesome! ( )

"Greg Heffley is not willing to be the odd man out.

A dance at Greg's middle school has everyone scrambling to find a partner, and Greg is determined not to be left by the wayside. So he concocts a desperate plan to find someone—anyone!—to go with on the big night.

But Greg's schemes go hilariously awry, and his only option is to attend the dance with his best friend, Rowley Jefferson, and a female classmate as a "group of friends." But the night is long, and anything can happen along the way. Who will arrive at the dance triumphantly, and who will end up being the third wheel?"

I wish I'd started keeping a journal a lot earlier on, because whoever ends up writing my biography is gonna have a lot of questions about my life in the years leading up to middle school.
