|Summary, etc.:||Get ready for a whole new look into Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid! Introducing the newest Wimpy Kid author-Rowley Jefferson! Rowley's best friend Greg Heffley has been chronicling his middle-school years in thirteen Diary of a Wimpy Kid journals . . . and counting. But it's finally time for readers to hear directly from Rowley in a journal of his own. In Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid , Rowley writes about his experiences and agrees to play the role of biographer for Greg along the way. (After all, one day Greg will be rich and famous, and everyone will want to know his life's story.) But Rowley is a poor choice for the job, and his "biography" of Greg is a hilarious mess. Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid: Rowley Jefferson's Journal offers readers a new way to look at the Wimpy world-one fans won't want to miss!|

Greg Heffley has spent plenty of time in the spotlight, wouldn't you say? His best friend, Rowley, certainly thinks so, and this spin-off of the wildly popular Wimpy Kid series gives the beleaguered sidekick a chance to shine (sort of). It starts out well enough, with Rowley narrating his exploits in classic Kinney style, but soon Greg catches on and mayhem ensues. First, Greg insists Rowley write an official biography of Greg, but Rowley's anecdotes aren't particularly laudatoryâin fact, Greg comes off as a pretty big jerk. Naturally, this only leads to more hilarity, particularly around Rowley and Greg's odd-couple friendship. As you'd probably expect, Kinney perfectly captures middle-school logic and relationships, especially the manic escalation of fights. Rowley emerges as a sweet if gullible kid, whose desire to be a good friend leads him down some questionable paths. Laughs abound, of course, and a roundup of lies Greg told Rowley is particularly hilarious. Kinney has mastered this format, and fans of the beloved series will be delighted by this fresh perspective.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: This is certainly one of the biggest books to come out this year. Kinney's fans already know all about it, so plan accordingly! Grades 2-5. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
