When snow shuts down Greg Heffley's middle school, his neighborhood transforms into a wintry battlefield. Rival groups fight over territory, build massive snow forts, and stage epic snowball fights. And in the crosshairs are Greg and his trusty best friend, Rowley Jefferson.
It's a fight for survival as Greg and Rowley navigate alliances, betrayals, and warring gangs in a neighborhood meltdown. When the snow clears, will Greg and Rowley emerge as heroes? Or will they even survive to see another day?
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Meltdown
Amulet Books, 2018
The Meltdown was the snowball fight to end all snowball fights. It will go down in snowball fight history. There was NO MERCY. And there is NO WAY that I EVER would have lasted as long as Greg Heffley & Co. did outside in those conditions. Politics or no politics, war or no war, I would have gone home for a nice cup of hot chocolate. I suppose that's the difference between a reader (me) and a troublemaker (Greg Heffley.) Oh, well. He can't help it, and if he didn't get himself into sticky situations, his stories would be super boring.
As always, this installment of Diary of a Wimpy Kid was enjoyable.
