'I liked the diary of the wimpy kid because it was very, very very funny. Jeff Kinney should continue to write these awesome books.' Margaret Moran, Diary of a Wimpy Kid fan

Join Greg Heffley in the seventh book in Jeff Kinney's hilarious Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.

When you live in a house with four other people, some fool is always gonna come along and ruin things for you.

Love is in the air, but what does that mean for Greg Heffley?

A Valentine's Day dance at Greg's 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 small consolation.

Then 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 . . .

The world is full of millions of Wimpy Kid fans! 7+ readers of all abilities can't get their heads out of Greg's diaries.

'I bought these books for my son who is dyslexic and has a hard time with reading. He loves them and doesn't fight when I push him to read. I love how the story is broken up into bite sized chunks with cute little cartoons interspersed throughout. Thanks for making reading fun for some of our struggling readers.' Kelley Godwin
