Amara's version of brain gain

1 comments
 
There's always talk in Northeast Ohio about "brain drain," the mass exodus of young professionals for the greener hills of other cities. Don't get me started on it. (And if you think you know my opinion on this, you may have to think again. But I digress.)

But for my overachieving daughter, brain drain can take place during winter break. Or summer break. Or over the weekend. So Amara reads. A lot.

Amara began reading the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series back in the first grade. She devoured each and every book. And then rereads them for a second and third time. It was no different this time around with the series' seventh book Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Third Wheel.



I surprised her with the book right after Thanksgiving. And appropriately enough, she has read The Third Wheel three times already. Could be because love is in the air for Greg, the main character. And we all know Amara takes love seriously so it seemed only right for her to give her thoughts on the book (and writing helped with the whole "brain drain" thing).

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Third Wheel is a very funny book. I really like the series because it's hilarious. You'll LOL after reading the whole series. The Third Wheel is also a good sequel to the other Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. The dance committee at Greg Heffley's school is organizing a Valentine's Day Dance, and things don't go exactly the way Greg plans it will. Greg and his date, Abby, first go to dinner at a fancy restaurant but have to eave because Greg wasn't dressed right. Then Greg thinks Abby has chicken pox at the dance when it really was a pimple. I thought that was funny. I hope you'll read The Third Wheel and find out what happens next for Greg.
Amara and I agree. This would make a great Valentine's Day. Parents can buy any of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books anywhere books and e-books are sold.
Amara "wimped" herself
And if you're looking for fun activities, you can Wimp Yourself, learn how to draw Greg, and learn more about author Jeff Kinney by checking out WimpyKid.com.



Disclosure: I was provided a copy of Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Third Wheel for review. As always, opinions are my own.
