Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Deep End is an upcoming book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. It will be released on October 27, 2020. A teaser was released on Amazon on February 13th, as well as a release date. [1] The cover of the book was revealed on May 26th.


In The Deep End, book 15 of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series from #1 international bestselling author Jeff Kinney, Greg Heffley and his family hit the road for a cross-country camping trip, ready for the adventure of a lifetime.
But things take an unexpected turn, and they find themselves stranded at an RV park that’s not exactly a summertime paradise. When the skies open up and the water starts to rise, the Heffleys wonder if they can save their vacation—or if they’re already in too deep.

  • This is the fourth time that the Jeff Kinney's name does not appear in the center of the cover picture.
  • This is the first time that the cover's text is distorted.
  • This is the fourth book to not have the word "Diary" written in yellow after Dog Days, Hard Luck, and The Meltdown.
  • This is the first book to feature characters that are not part of the Heffley family on the cover picture.
  • This book cover is the one with the most characters featured in it.
  • This is the second book with a different cover texture, the first being Wrecking Ball.
  • This is the third book in the series to take place during summer vacation, the first two being Dog Days and The Long Haul.
  • It it is the fifth book that Greg has gone on a trip: the first four being Cabin Fever, The Long Haul, Old School, and The Getaway.
  • Based on the description of this book, we can guess that Greg's trip will be the main part of this book. This would then be the third time a trip has been the highlight of a book, the first time being The Long Haul and the second being The Getaway, or will be about Greg's summer like Dog Days.
