Get ready for a whole new look into Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid! Introducing the newest Wimpy Kid author - Rowley Jefferson!
Rowley's best friend Greg Heffley has been chronicling his middle-school years in 13 Diary of a Wimpy Kid journals...and counting. But it's finally time for listeners to hear directly from Rowley in a journal of his own.
In Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid, Rowley writes about his experiences and agrees to play the role of biographer for Greg along the way. (After all, one day Greg will be rich and famous, and everyone will want to know his life's story.) But Rowley is a poor choice for the job, and his "biography" of Greg is a hilarious mess.
Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid: Rowley Jefferson's Journal offers listeners a new way to look at the Wimpy world - one fans won't want to miss!

But aside from the fact that most of the content is the same as the £1 World Book Day version, this book honestly troubles me.
Greg's behaviour towards Rowley in the WK books is often harsh, but Rowley tends to stand up to him more. In this book, it's actually bordering on abusive. Greg leaves him injured in the woods, in the dark. He locks him out of the house in the dark. He stops him studying. He bullies him into letting him cheat and gets him in trouble at school. He lies, manipulates, and steals from Rowley on multiple occasions. He makes Rowley feel that he owes him. And yet Rowley continues to call him an awesome friend. The friendship is actually downright unhealthy.
I was hoping that we would see Rowley stand up for himself, as he does several times in the WK books when he often takes himself off to hang out with better friends when Greg is being a jerk. But while he does attempt to stand up for himself a couple of times, it doesn't really work in his favour.
All in all it's an uncomfortable read; a bullying victim that chooses to stick with his bully. I'd rather see movie Rowley, who stands up strong and tells Greg he's not a good friend when he needs calling out. And frankly, I'd be concerned if my daughter read this and thought this was how friendship should be.
