Greg Heffley’s life is not going well. His best friend Rowley now has a girlfriend. Where does that leave Greg? Out in the cold. Suddenly, Greg has to walk to and from school by himself, carry his own books, sit with other people at lunch, worry about who to play with at recess, and find something to do after school. Who knew that losing your best friend would cause so much trouble?!
Middle school is no picnic at the best of times. It’s even worse when you don’t have a best friend (and you’re not sure how to make more friends). Eventually, though, Greg thinks he’s found a way to make things a little better. He’ll leave his fate up to a Magic 8 Ball! This shouldn’t cause any problems at all, right? Right?!
Join Greg Heffley as he navigates the halls of middle school–girls, cafeteria seating, recess games, making friends–and his somewhat unpredictable family. Will Greg’s luck ever change? Find out when you read Hard Luck, the eighth book in Jeff Kinney’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid series!
