Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Old School, Review

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Old School by Jeff Kinney

Plot: This latest installment in the Wimpy Kid diaries has Greg singing the blues over being forced to unplug from technology. His mom is on a campaign to have people sign a petition to vow not to use electronics for a weekend of family and neighborhood togetherness. This leads to a park cleanup project, so people have a place to go during this technology-free weekend. Throw in an amateur lemonade stand, a troop of Girl Scouts running a tight ship, an elementary school kid who is too smart for his own good, as well as a busload of juvenile delinquents, and you have the makings for some typical Greg Heffley shenanigans. Is technology-free always the best way?

Grandpa has also come to stay in the Heffley household, hopefully just temporarily. After Greg gets himself in trouble that Grandpa tries to get him out of but ends up getting him further into, Greg finds himself on a bus to Hardscrabble Farms for a week long class trip with no technology or junk food. Will Greg make it through a week of team-building exercises, not enough supplies, questionable hygiene, pranks, and an old camp legend?

Would you recommend this book? Yes.

5 stars
