Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

reader beware you have been warned

I got this book for my birthday and read it for five days and it was quite a nice book and I would give it 3 and a half but I can’t do the half thing on the star rating some stories were better than others and one of my favourite stories was the Demon and I could tell Greg was just acting like he was possessed by a demon some of the stories like the changing had a few tiny unexpected near endings the title I chose might have been a bit misleading because these stories aren’t exactly terrifying not like goosebumps anyway but this was a good book and probably my favourite in the rowley series but Cabin fever still my favourite from Jeff Kinney when it comes to the actual diary of a wimpy kid series when it comes to Greg stories and for those of you complaining about what the stories are like remember rowley did write these in there world
