Rated 5 out of 5 by from another hit by Jeff Kinney, Well Jeff Kiney has done it again by writing another diary of a wimpy kid. I loved this book alot and i was stuck on this book so much that i finished in about 2 hours and 30 mins. This book is about a teenage boy named greg heffley who is in middle school and he writes about his life in school and out of school. This book is overall my favorite book i have read in my whole entire life. It is full of humor,comic,and it is a really good kids book. If you are between the 3rd grade to the 7th grade this is the book for you. And if you like this one you should read the whole entire series and there is 5 books in the series and if there is a book you have to do a report on do this one.

Editorial Reviews

The Ugly Truth follows the sales and publicity momentum of the #1 bestseller The Wimpy Kid Movie Diary, a nonfiction book by Jeff Kinney published to coincide with the March 2010 release of the feature movie version of the first Wimpy Kid book. The Ugly Truth is a pivotal installment in the series and a must-read for fans. “To me, the fifth book is the linchpin of the series,” said Jeff Kinney. “Since Greg Heffley is a cartoon character but also a literary character, I’ve always wondered if he should grow up or stay in a state of arrested development forever. This book answers that question once and for all.”“With The Ugly Truth, Jeff Kinney takes his readers in a whole new direction,” said Charles Kochman, executive editor of the Wimpy Kid series. “All of the favorite characters will be back but, like Greg Heffley, you will see them in a new light as Jeff explores the reality of adolescence.”  “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth is the most anticipated book of 2010, with the largest initial print run and with Jeff Kinney’s millions of fans elated with anticipation. And we at Abrams are happy to do our bit in bringing millions of kids—and their parents, caregivers, librarians, teachers, and friends—into stores for books this fall, starting with the release of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Box of Books gift set next month.“We believe that our laydown of The Ugly Truth will bring traffic into stores and help make this holiday season an upbeat one for booksellers. As we roll out our pre-sales and marketing campaign over the next few months, we know that the excitement will skyrocket and that we may well go back to press to cover increased demand.”
