THE LONG HAUL
Sit back and laugh as you go on this chaotic, hilarious road trip with Greg, the main character. Greg is the middle child of three boys and part of semi-ordinary family. Susan, Greg’s mother, never fails to surprise the family with last minute vacations. Once again, like the other family vacations no one gets to decide where to go except for the mom.
Greg Heffley shares every moment of what it means to go on a horrible family road trip. Poor Greg who ends up sitting in the back sit along with the rest of the family belongings cannot find anything amusing about his situation. His mom tries really hard to get everyone to participate in educational games as well as learning Spanish. Many unpleasant situations occur as the family tries to reach their destination, the beach. When the family finally makes it to their first stop things get worse. The motel they stay at could not get any worse than it already was. Seagulls, car crashes, and winning a pig are just a few of the trip’s highlights.
The Long Haul is the 9th book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Series. Jeff Kinney will definitely make the reader laugh out loud.
