Diary of a Wimpy Kid #5: The Ugly Truth

Follow your favourite wimp into the stormy seas of his approaching teens. This stonking comic-strip diary is funnier than ever! Greg has always been in a hurry to grow up. But is getting older really all it’s cracked up to be? Romance and coolness? Forget it. More like boy-girl troubles, really hard homework and awkward physical changes. How will Greg face the ugly truth?

  • This book was really good. I like the bit when the maid that works at Greg’s house is found by Greg’s mum with some of her friends watching Television.
