A very, different book. It's about a boy going through middle school writing in a diary his mom gave him. He writes about his best friend Rowley and about his brother and his band. I think Greg is being mean to his friend and being pushy. It was good at first then Greg got more self centered as time passed. All he worries about is playing video games and making Rowley look bad. So you will like the book if you like jerks be mean.
