Do you get bad luck? Well, I know someone who does. In the book, "Diary of a Wimpy Kid - Hard Luck" a kid named Greg Heffely in sixth grade always gets in trouble and always plays video games. Greg is having a bad school year because his best friend Rowley got a girlfriend and now Rowley doesn't want to hang out with Greg anymore.

My favorite part in the story is when Greg got brand new shoes, but when he to to school there was dog poop on them. This somewhat relates to my brother, because one day we where having a snowball fight and he fell into dog poop. I think that Greg reminds me of my brother a lot but that I am more like Rowley. I am glad that none of my friends have girl friends yet. We still play video games together just like Greg does.

I would recommend this book to people who like humor and the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" series. If you are in fourth to sixth grade I think you will enjoy this book. If you are someone like Greg, I hope you don't get into too much trouble like he did!
