Introduction

A pre-teen joins the ranks of middle school, where he discovers that navigating these surroundings to be more of a challenge than he expected. He is faced with many socially awkward situations, which he must learn to bear the brunt of. To deal with these difficulties, he devises many schemes to help himself become the cool kid he believes he deserves to be. He records these schemes within his own journal. He keeps this journal not only because of his mother’s advice but as a keep sake for when he becomes rich and famous.

Plot

The story begins with the introduction of Greg Heffley who is about to start his life as a middle school student. Greg is the second of three children. His older brother Rodrick enjoys picking on him when the opportunity presents itself. While his younger brother Manny is essentially a spoiled brat, who is always up to mischief but never gets into trouble. Greg also feels that his parents don’t understand him. His mother gives him a journal to records his thoughts and experiences within. While his father wished he was the type to go outside and play more, as oppose to his lifestyle of staying inside and playing video games. Greg also has a best friend, Rowley Jefferson. Greg believes Rowley to be too immature for middle school, but Greg is still determined the raise their popularity at school.

Greg’s mind is preoccupied with the things expected from a middle school student. He is worried about getting the right seat, avoiding the social humiliation of the cheese touch and being popular. To start his plan of becoming more popular, Greg suggests that Rowley and he join the Wrestling Club. Greg’s stay with the club is unfortunately short-lived, as he loses a match to Fregley, a boy considered to be the school nerd. He also seats next to Fregley in class, which is another of his plans that fell through. The cheese touch is similar to what young children call having the “cooties”. There was a piece of cheese left on the basketball court which got soft and moldy over time. One student made the mistake of touching the piece of moldy cheese one day, which started the harsh tradition of the cheese touch.

Greg uses the journal to record events, problems, schemes to achieve popularity and exploits of his day to day life. The journal along with Greg’s relationship with Rowley is the main themes the book. Greg’s friendship with Rowley is odd as he constantly criticizes him, in attempts to have him behave in more socially appropriate ways. At the same time deeming him to truly be his best friend. One of the most distinct events to be recorded within the journal was the happenings on Halloween.

On Halloween day Greg and Rowley go trick or treating. They are bullied by some older teenagers who spray them with a water-filled fire extinguisher. Greg tries to scare them off by threatening to call the cops on them. This, however, just antagonizes them and they chase Greg and Rowley who are forced to hide in Greg’s grandmother’s house until the go away.

Later in the school year after Rowley recovered from a broken arm caused by none other than Greg, the duo join the safety patrol. Their job is to walk kindergarteners to their homes after school. One day Greg decides to chase the children home instead of walking them. He then pins these events of Rowley, which causes them to end their friendship. Greg is confused at Rowley’s actions where he late tries to become friends with Fregley to make Rowley jealous.

As fate would have it, the older teen bullies return to force Greg and Rowley to eat the moldy cheese on the basketball court. Greg uses the excuse that he’s lactose intolerant and he will die if he eats the cheese. The bullies then force Rowley to eat the cheese and leave after he’s done. When the students notice that cheese is missing, Greg covers for Rowley say that he has thrown it away. Though he now has the long avoided cheese touch, his covering for Rowley leads to them mending their relationship.
