In Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Greg goes to middle school. He does not like it because he is one of the youngest in the school because he is in 5th grade. His best friend Rowley and Greg get in to a fight. Rowley does not hang out with Greg anymore and he found a new best friend, but then some teenages force Rowley to eat some disgusting, moldy cheese off the pavement in the playground that was there for a long time under the basketball hoop nobody will even go near it, so Greg stepped in, in front of everyone and said he ate the cheese. Rowley and greg became friends again.

Greg and Rowley's friendship had broke due to Greg terrorizing the kindergarteners by chasing them with worms, and Mrs. Irvine had accused Greg of terrorizing the kindergarteners and thought Greg is Rowley, so Rowley and Collin decided to hang out. In the end, Rowley ate the moldy cheese and Greg said he ate it. So, Rowley and Greg's friendship had been restored thanks to Greg stepping up for it.

First of all, I want to get something straight: this is a JOURNAL, not a diary. I know what is says on the cover but when Mom went out to buy this thing I SPECIFICALLY said to make sure it didn't say "diary" on it. So don't expect me to be all "dear diary this" and "dear diary that".
