Diary of a Wimpy Kid
One of my son's favorite books is Diary of a Wimpy Kid. You can't help but feel sorry for middle schooler Greg who is harassed by his older brother Roderick, teased by his classmates, and has to deal with his younger brother Manny who is always trying to get Greg in trouble. Greg is an ordinary kid just trying to get through the day without anything bad happening to him. This is a very funny book and highly recommended for tweens.
