Marsh's MMGM Pick is Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Third Wheel
by Jeff Kinney

     The Valentine's Day Dance is coming up and Greg is desperately trying to find a date.  Even the biggest losers in school have made connections to meet up with girls on the big night.  Good thing Greg's best friend, Rowley, is the social chairperson on student council and there just happens to be a girl who doesn't have a date either that is on the student council.  Will Greg get a date in time for the dance?

      This was a very humorous book like all the others in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.  I enjoy how all of the main characters stay the same but Jeff Kinney always incorporates new characters into every new book.  What I loved most about this book was the ending, but I can't tell you what happens so you will just have to read the book to find out.
