The narrator of the book isGreg Heffley, and it reads like a journal. This book is being made into a movie as the sequel for the film. The cover mainly depicts Rodrick shoving Greg.
The book starts with Greg revealing that his brother, Rodrick, had found his other diary (The story of what happened is a big part of the plot, especially at the end of the book) and that his mother had bought him another. Greg is forced to join the swimming team over the summer holidays, because his dad thinks that he is destined to be a great swimmer. However, Greg hates the swimming team (despite winning the ” Most Lessed “Improved” award”) as the pool is freezing cold. One day, Greg’s mom forces him to wear his hand-me-down speedo, only to get laughed at by the others. Rodrick comes to pick him up, leaving him in the back with Rodrick’s musical instruments. Rodrick is always 30 minutes late. Greg decides he would rather walk home than have his head taken off by one of the drums. He also spends the rest of the swimming team meetings in the bathroom wrapped up in toilet paper so he doesn’t get hypothermia.
The next day, he returns to school, only to discover he still has the Cheese Touch from last year. He eventually passes the Cheese Touch onto the new boy, Jeremy Pindle. Greg also explains that the people with their surname letter higher in the alphabet are usually smarter (showing Alex Aruda and Christopher Ziegel). The only boy to break that rule was Peter Uteger, who rarely puts his hand up any more (as the other kids call him P.U). Greg claims to have started that to a girl next to him.
One day, Greg and his friends begin a joke called the “Invisible Chirag” where they pretend Chirag Gupta is invisible, but he eventually gets in trouble,Later the tri-school talent show takes place. Rodrick’s band, named Loaded Diaper (he spells it as Löded Diper, Rodrick is the worst speller in the family) gets in, hoping that his band can get noticed. Rodrick plans to have his band’s performance taped so he can send it to record companies, then he’s gonna quit school and do the band full-time. The problem is, when Rodrick’s drum solo begins, Mom starts dancing, and the camera focuses on her for the rest of the song, which ends up the Internet sensational viral “Dancing Mom” video. Rodrick is upset, because he has nothing to send to record companies, and in his anger, start telling his friends the story of how Greg got stuck in the women’s bathroom to everyone who had a brother or sister in his grade. In response, Greg tells the story of what happened.
Over the summer, Greg and Rodrick went to their Grandfather’s home, but there is nothing to do there, so Greg start writing in his old journal, but Rodrick stole it and made a run for it, but he tripped over a game set of Gutbusters. Greg took the diary back and took it to the nearest bathroom. He started ripping pages out of it, but someone comes in, and it’s a elderly woman putting on makeup. Greg was about to tell her she was in the wrong bathroom, because according to Greg, people in Leisure Towers are always doing stuff like that, but then another woman comes in, and he realizes that it was himself who made the mistake, and he was in the girls’ bathroom. Eventually, security got him out, but Rodrick had seen the whole thing from Grandpa’s TV, which is tuned to the security cameras. The next day a bunch of boys surround him, Greg braces himself for the teasing to start, but they start congratulating him. As it turns out, due to the affects of rumors, the story turned into one about him looking inside the girls changing room and taking pictures of the girl at Crossland High School, because of all of this Greg becomes one of the Most Popular kids at school for the first time.But still even what happened Greg helped his Brother on his project.
