Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth (Book 5)




Book 5 in the phenomenally successful Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney.

Greg Heffley has always been in a hurry to grow up. But is getting older really all it's cracked up to be?

Greg suddenly finds himself dealing with the pressures of boy-girl parties, increased responsibilities, and even the awkward changes that come with getting older - all without his best friend, Rowley, at his side.

Can Greg make it through on his own? Or will he have to face the 'ugly truth'?
