“The Third Wheel (Diary of a Wimpy Kid #7)”by Jeff Kinney
Genre: Children’s/Middle Grade Fiction, Humor
Summary from Goodreads:
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.
Not going to lie. I’ve been waiting for Greg/Rowley/girls to pop up in the series. It’s about time that this storyline was explored. Dating (and even just being around the opposite sex) is really awkward for everyone. It was fun to see Greg and Rowley dip their tops into the world of love even if it was just for a second.
The bottom line? Funny.
