Synopsis

"In Wrecking Ball, an unexpected inheritance gives the Heffley family a chance to make major improvements to their home. But they soon find that construction isn't all it's cracked up to be. When things get rough, will Greg be able to save the house? Or will the Heffleys be forced to move? Find out in the 14th book!”

Trivia

  • This is the third book where the words "of a Wimpy Kid" are in orange, the first is The Third Wheel and the second is Hard Luck.
  • Rather than using only one color for a book, this uses the theme of construction instead. The cover has metal bolts lining the edges and the font of Wrecking Ball is stylised metallic-ally.
  • According to the British wimpy kid website, there will be an audio-book of this book
