Tryouts are a mess, and Greg is sure he won’t make the cut. But he unexpectedly lands a spot on the worst team. In the sixteenth installment to the iconic series, Greg is set on becoming an all-star. With a high-stakes Field Day quickly approaching, Greg needs to step up his game- literally. With all this sporty spirit in the air, Greg's mom encourages Greg to try basketball. Will Greg emerge as a big shot? Or will he perpetually warm the bench? Read this hilarious journal-style novel to figure it out! Once again, Kinney returns with our beloved anti-hero. He weaves humor rarely found in the middle-grade set into his simplistic yet elaborate works. A few gripes: Manny's favorite show, previously called The Snurples, was titled The Murples, and the outcome of the Heffley's moving misadventures still remains a mystery. However, this was a light and charming read. New and longtime fans alike will get a kick out of the new Wimpy Kid book!
After a disastrous field day competition at school, Greg decides that when it comes to his athletic career, he’s officially retired. But after his mom urges him to give sports one more chance, he reluctantly agrees to sign up for basketball.
