I read the book and want to watch the movie. It's about when in the summer, Greg only needs the tv and the air conditioner during the summer break, but his mom has other plans. She has a "surprise trip" to Meemaw's 90th birthday. But Greg has a sneaky scheme that throws the the party goes off course. It is all for a really good reason... FOR GAMING CONVENTION!! IT WAS AWSOME :)!!!
