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?

          Because of the character's actions and ideas and the problems they face and what they do to overcome that problem.

              Greg's uncle comes to live with them and his dad isn't happy about that but his mum insists as he's family. Greg's school is gearing up for Valentines day dance as a fundraiser. Greg's grade this year has more boys than girls so, boys who aren't popular don't have the best chance to find a girl-partner for the dance. Greg comes up with an idea where Rowley, Abigail and him can go as a group but that doesn't go down as well he had planned. I have been enjoying this series a lot. His family didn't have much to do in this except for his uncle as it was mostly about his school and the Valentines day dance. A fun read still. I enjoyed this one way too much. It was funny from start to finish. I even got mad at Greg's mom and a group of self-entitled seniors. I plan to read more entries in the series, but for now I'm considering this one my favorite. 4 stars

                      It was a great book! The reason I didn't rate it 5 stars is because lots of things need some work, and not everything was great. Some scenes just weren't the best, in my opinion, they were actually kinda awkward.
