Plot Summary
So in this book Greg is trying to be helpful but NO ONE listens to him. Even when he tells his mom it would be better if she would chew her potato chips a little more quietly that would be great! And he also has to impress the 4th cutest girl in his class, Holly Hills.

Personal Opinion
It was kind of good. I thought it was funny, but maybe I'm getting too old for this type of book.  It's not exactly my type, but I liked some one else's life to listen to for once. It was a nice break from the fantasy I normally read.  The audiobook reader was kinda good.  Sometimes he made Greg sound a little bit snotty.  He did different voices, but since it was a journal, it was mostly Greg.  I'm going to give this audiobook to my little brother, he will probably love it!!
