Greg Heffley is not willing to be the odd man out.

A dance at Greg's middle school has everyone scrambling to find a partner, and Greg is determined not to be left by the wayside. So he concocts a desperate plan to find someone—anyone!—to go with on the big night.

But Greg's schemes go hilariously awry, and his only option is to attend the dance with his best friend, Rowley Jefferson, and a female classmate as a "group of friends." But the night is long, and anything can happen along the way. Who will arrive at the dance triumphantly, and who will end up being the third wheel?

In this book, the main character is a boy named Greg. Greg is the lame guy that doesn't have many friends. But he can always depend on his friend Rowly. Greg also has to deal with his family at home.

Things get bad for Greg at home and school. At home he has an uncle moving in who wastes his Dad's money on scams. There's a dance at school and Greg asks lots of girls to the dance, but they all say no. There's one girl left, Abigail, and she says yes, but then Rowly comes along as his wingman and he and Abigail end up as a couple.

I liked this book a lot because it was funny and it taught me a lot about growing up. I think you should read if you want to know more about what growing up is like.

Love is in the air—but what does that mean for Greg Heffley?

A Valentine’s Day dance at Greg’s middle school has turned his world upside down. As Greg scrambles to find a date, he’s worried he’ll be left out in the cold on the big night. His best friend, Rowley, doesn’t have any prospects either, but that’s a small consolation.

An unexpected twist gives Greg a partner for the dance and leaves Rowley the odd man out. But a lot can happen in one night, and in the end, you never know who’s going to be lucky in love.

Baker & Taylor
Trying to find a partner for the Valentine's Day dance, Greg finds solace in the fact that his best friend Rowley also doesn't have a date, but an unexpected twist might turn his night around.

I didn't know if she was going to ask me to dance or if I somehow done something to make her mad, But I did not want to end up getting bitten at a middle school dance.
