Greg Heffley has always been in a hurry to grow up. But is getting older really all it’s cracked up to be?


 


Greg suddenly finds himself dealing with the pressures of boy-girl parties, increased responsibilities, and even the awkward changes that come with getting older—all without his best friend, Rowley, at his side. Can Greg make it through on his own? Or will he have to face the “ugly truth”?

From AudioFile:

As the school year starts, Greg Heffley is out to replace his former best friend, Rowley. Identifying a middle school buddy is tricky, as is navigating the family upheaval when Greg's mother goes back to school and when the extended family gathers at Grandma's for Uncle Gary's wedding. Transitions are hard! Ramon de Ocampo delivers with steady pacing and a mostly deadpan voice that is perfect for the story's outrageous events and Greg's running commentary on all that is happening in his life. In particular, de Ocampo's sarcasm as he delivers Dad's proclamations--"RESPONSIBILITY!"--underscores the humor in the adult/'tween relationship. A.R. AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine
