         Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth

by Jeff Kinney

The Ugly Truth is the fifth book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. Disaster strikes when Greg loses his best friend Rowley (Rowley has a new friend). The book follows Greg's quest to become more popular, his battles with lazy maids and rotten dentists, nearly freezing at the school slumber party and the pain of having to attend family get-togethers with humour and hilarity.

Anna, the Brownie Book Club Editor, thinks this...

Greg is a great character. He always seems to over-think everything and his imagination runs away with him all the time. Sometimes that makes it difficult for other people to believe him when he's actually right about something, though... A really funny read!

Georgia, aged nine, thinks this...

The characters will really make you laugh with the funny things they say. Greg is definitely my favourite character. The pictures and speech bubbles really bring the story to life. If you like this book, I would definitely recommend Dog Days to you.
