Diary of a Wimpy Kid
This "novel in cartoons" by Jeff Kinney made me laugh several times. It's a joke book that captures the many ironic twists of a middle-school life. My sister-in-law recommended it, and I saw it in Target along with a sequel, so I picked it up. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to laugh and remember what middle school is really like, but especially to boys who are turned off to reading. It's a quick read, kids can relate, it has pretty good conflict development without getting too heavy. The only thing I didn't like was the back cover, which made the book out to be something it isn't. But that's hardly anything new.
