Sneak Peek at New Diary of a Wimpy Kid, "The Meltdown"

Read a chapter from Jeff Kinney's latest in this exclusive look at Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Meltdown.


Greg Heffley is back in Jeff Kinney's latest installment of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid." The Meltdown is the 13th book in the beloved series.

This time, snow closes Greg's middle school, and his neighborhood becomes a battlefield, complete with fights over territory, snow forts, and, of course, snowball fights. Greg and his best friend Rowley try to survive in the middle of it all.

SLJ is sharing an sneak peek: Read a chapter before the book is officially released on Oct. 30.

Often credited with making readers out of those who had been reluctant to pick up a book in the past,  Kinney has sold more than 200 million copies of "Wimpy Kid" since the first book was released in 2007.
