Additional Comments /Review: Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw, is the third in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, though it could be considered a standalone novel, just like the first two. Greg Heffley is in trouble again, this time his dad is threatening to send him to a military academy for the summer if he doesn’t shape up his act. Now Greg has to find a way to stay out of military school, get the girl, and avoid embarrassment, all while getting good grades! While this is not worthy of a place in the teens top ten, I still enjoyed this book, it was a nice breather from the darker things I’ve been reading lately, I personally found this book to be the best of the first three.

I thought the cover is great to attract new readers and showed Greg's personality . It shows a true life situation some boys face and a funny, easy taken way to solve it. Nominate? Yes. 4Q Better than most. K.W., 15
