Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth is Wimpy Kid Book 5 in the enormously popular (and funny) series by Jeff Kinney. Middle schooler Greg Hefley continues to relate, in words and cartoon drawings, the story of his life in middle school and at home. According to the author, "To me, the fifth book is the linchpin of the series. Since Greg Heffley is a cartoon character but also a literary character, I've always wondered if he should grow up or stay in a state of arrested development. This book answers that question once and for all." (quotation from ABRAMS news release, July 29, 2010). While Greg's goofy escapades and his self-centered take on life continue to be funny, Greg is growing up and becoming more aware of the world. It's a very busy school year with lots of changes. Greg is going through puberty and getting advice from health class and lots of other places. His mother writes about puberty in her column for the local paper, which embarrasses Greg; she also gives him a book to read, What the Heck Just Happened to My Body?, but Greg wants no part of it. Even his grandmother gets in the act and he knows that the next time he sees her, she'll give him the dreaded "talk" just as she did his older brother.
