Cabin Fever (Diary of a Wimpy Kid #6) by Jeff Kinney
I read and reviewed the first of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series in April 2009. You can read that review and plug it in here. The book is a quick read both literally and figuratively into the mind of a middle school boy. Greg Heffly's journal is funny and REAL. I enjoyed every tangent he goes off on, and could relate to his feelings of frustration with friends and family, the feelings of isolation when he gets into trouble, and his constant fear of being apprehended by the police when he gets into BIG trouble. Jeff Kinney just seems to get it. And while he thanks teachers and librarians for putting his books in the hands of readers, I'd like to thank Mr. Kinney for writing books that are so easy to put in the hands of readers, especially boys that are often reluctant to read anything. This book is for them, and for anyone else that wants to read just for the pleasure and humor of it. Reed Reads Score: 4
