From Goodreads:
Love is in the air—but what does that mean for Greg Heffley?

A Valentine’s Day dance at Greg’s middle school has turned his world upside down. As Greg scrambles to find a date, he’s worried he’ll be left out in the cold on the big night. His best friend, Rowley, doesn’t have any prospects either, but that’s a small consolation.

An unexpected twist gives Greg a partner for the dance and leaves Rowley the odd man out. But a lot can happen in one night, and in the end, you never know who’s going to be lucky in love.

I enjoyed this book. I wasn't a bit disappointed. I think it's my second favorite (with Dog Days being the winner.) 

Oh, the things Greg does. Sometimes, I don't think that he thinks. It's fantastic. I know some people that think he's a jerk, but I don't think so. Everyone has done something that Greg has done, or knows someone who was EXACTLY like him. I don't judge Greg because I think that everyone has a little bit of Greg in them.

I tried to pick a favorite part, but I can't. It's all so good. As for the school dance -- Everything that possibly could go wrong did. It was hilarious. Enjoy!
