My son started reading the Wimpy Kid books in second grade. He checked out the book from his school library and was instantly hooked. It was the first time I heard him laughing while reading a book. When a Wimpy Kid book comes out, he pretty much devours it as soon as we purchase it. The Third Wheel was no different.
This past week we had the opportunity to meet the author Jeff Kinney and have our collection of Wimpy Kid books signed. My children had fun watching him sign loads and loads of books and asking him some questions. My son had finished Diary of a Wimpy Kid The Third Wheel before we even made it home from the bookstore!

DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: THE THIRD WHEEL (Book 7)
Love is in the air—but what does that mean for Greg Heffley?
A Valentine’s Day dance at Greg’s middle school has turned his world upside down. As Greg scrambles to find a date, he’s worried he’ll be left out in the cold on the big night. His best friend, Rowley, doesn’t have any prospects either, but that’s a small consolation.
An unexpected twist gives Greg a partner for the dance and leaves Rowley the odd man out. But a lot can happen in one night, and in the end, you never know who’s going to be lucky in love.
My Thoughts: The Third Wheel deals with some interesting topics this time around. Middle school dances and the drama and trauma of asking a girl to a dance. The topic was handled with the same silliness of of Greg as the other books. Read The Third Wheel to find out if Greg scores a date. Obviously, more fun ensures, but I don't want to give more away.
