The book acts as a journal and follows the adventures of Greg Heffley, the narrator of the book, who is in the second half of his seventh-grade year. This book was released in the US on January 13, 2009.
The book begins on January 1, with Greg talking about his family's New Year's resolutions. Life becomes more difficult for Greg and his best friend Rowley when their school bus route is "rezoned" to the Whirley Street neighborhood, so they have to walk to and from school.
Greg also deals with being compared to his father Frank's boss's sons, who all play sports and always seem to be outside exercising. Frank is jealous of this and wants his sons to be like Boss's sons. After conflicts over Greg wanting to stay inside and watch TV on Saturdays and Frank stealing his school snacks, Frank makes him sign up for intramural soccer after an incident at the church on Easter.
