A family road trip is supposed to be a lot of fun . . . unless, of course, you’re the Heffleys.
The journey starts off full of promise, then quickly takes several wrong turns. Gas station bathrooms, crazed seagulls, a fender bender, and a runaway pig-not exactly Greg Heffley’s idea of a good time.
But even the worst road trip can turn into an adventure-and this is one the Heffleys won’t soon forget.
Greg Heffley is on a losing streak. His best friend, Rowley Jefferson, has ditched him, and finding new friends in middle school is proving to be a tough task.
To change his fortunes, Greg decides to take a leap of faith and turn his decisions over to chance.
Will a roll of the dice turn things around, or is Greg’s life destined to be just another hard-luck story?

Let me get something straight: This is a JOURNAL, not a diary. This was Mom’s idea, not mine. But if she thinks I’m going to write down my feelings in here or whatever, she’s crazy.
The only reason I agreed to do this at all is because I figure later on when I’m rich and famous, this book is gonna come in handy.
But for now I’m stuck in middle school with a bunch of morons.
Remember how I said that if some jerk caught me carrying a book with ‘diary’ on the cover they were gonna get the wrong idea?
Well, that’s exactly what happened today.
Now that Rodrick knows I have another journal, I better remember to keep this one locked up. Rodrick actually got ahold of my last journal . . . But don’t even get me started on THAT story. Even without my Rodrick problems, my summer was pretty lousy.
Whatever you do, don’t ask me how I spent my summer vacation because I definitely don’t want to talk about it.
New Year’s Day
‘You know how you’re supposed to come up with a list of “resolutions” at the beginning of the year to try to make yourself a better person?
Well, the problem is, it’s not easy for me to think of ways to improve myself, because I’m pretty much one of the best people I know.’
But Greg’s dad has other ideas. He wants Greg to change his wimpy ways, toughen up and enlist in other ‘manly’ endeavours. And when he threatens to send Greg to military academy, Greg realizes he has to shape up . . . or get shipped out.
The way I like to spend my summer holiday is in front of the TV, playing video games with the curtains closed and the light turned off.
Greg’s mom has a vision of ‘family togetherness’ that really doesn’t sound a whole lot of fun.
But there’s a brand-new addition to the Heffley family to contend with and it looks like Greg might be outnumbered. It could be a real dog of a summer…
Greg Heffley has always been in a hurry to grow up. But is getting older really all it’s cracked up to be?
Suddenly Greg is dealing with the pressures of boy-girl parties, increased responsibilities, and event the awkward changes that come with getting older. And after a big fight with his best friend Rowley, it looks like Greg is going to have face the “ugly truth” all by himself…
Greg Heffley is in big trouble. School property has been damaged and Greg is the prime suspect. But the crazy thing is, he’s innocent! Or at least sort of.
The authorities are closing in, but then a surprise blizzard hits and the Heffley family is trapped indoors. Greg knows that when the snow melts he’s going to have to face the music but could any punishment be worse than being stuck inside with your family for the holidays?
Love is in the air but what does that mean for Greg Heffley?
A Valentine’s Day dance at Greg’s 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 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 . . .
