Reviewed by Ethan H (Library Patron)

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Deep End by Jeff Kinney is a book mostly about the struggles that Gregory (the main character) faces after having to move into his grandparent’s home, because of what happened in the previous diary of a wimpy kid book. Greg is a boy in 6th grade who feels he needs some time away from his family because of how close they have been recently. His mom is not fond of this idea though because she thinks they should spend more time as a family before Greg and his siblings grow up. All of a sudden, Greg’s dad gets a call from his grandma saying there’s an old camper that Greg’s uncle left behind and that the camper is up for the taking. Greg’s family see this as an opportunity to get out of Grandma’s house and to just take a road trip for however long it is needed. Everything is going great on the road trip but after a day or two and getting kicked out of multiple places they start to get tired. Greg’s family starts to consider going home when they see a sign called “Campers Eden.” They decide to give this resort a try and find out they actually like it. There are a lot of activities to keep them busy and everything seems to be going amazing but after half a week or so things start to fall off the deep end. When it’s all over can they save their vacation “or are they already in too deep”?
