"In the latest installment of this popular series, Greg is feeling abandoned because his bestÑand onlyÑfriend, Rowley, has a girlfriend. Narrator Ramon De Ocampo sounds too old to be convincing as a middle schooler, but his performance is expressive and clear. His pacing is excellent, leaving listeners enough time to laugh and process whatÕs happening beyond GregÕs limited viewpoint and clueless self-absorption. As ever, this series masterfully displays adultsÕ well-meaning confusion, as when Greg discovers his motherÕs hidden stash of parenting guides and his schoolÕs attempts to create community go awry. A wide range of listeners will empathize with Greg and his all-too-familiar troubles. A.F. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
