    In this discussion feel free to share any thoughts and opinions you have about the book and feel free to share any information photos or teaser images leaked by any sources and note this is mostly a thread for fun discusing about the next book

    My thoughts about this upcoming book:

    The first of let's analyze teaser image that we got from last month

    https://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/childrens/childrens-book-news/article/76438-wimpy-kid-series-reaches-milestone-as-book-13-announced.html?utm_source=Publishers+Weekly&utm_campaign=d5ac6d6e66-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2018_03_26&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_0bb2959cbb-d5ac6d6e66-306051245

    SPECULATIONS BEFORE THE COVER REVEAL

    What we got The Heffley Family & Rowley in a snow half as deep of their height for now let's this with a grain of salt since as we know most of the leaked teaser images and synopsis we got before doesn't play a relevant to the story despite that book 13's is going to take place mostly in December 31 -January since they already covered February because of The Third Wheel what's leads to me assume that it's going to place in January you may you the books haven't focus anything related to New Year or New Years eve that much,and another thing why i made this assumption since the books Dog Days,The Ugly Truth,Cabin Fever,The Third Wheel,The Long Haul,and The Getaway mostly covers holidays and likely that they would cover New Year and stuff kids can relate to during that holiday like what they did with previous books.

    Now on to the what's the book cover's color is going to be based on what fans think and come up with what could color is the cover going to be

    First were going to be based on the teaser image the number "13" in metal/rock ice feel to it could a icy white/steel like cover and some people in the fanbase thought that the books is recoloring the recent books 

    It was brought up by a wiki user that this is not always the case hower take a look at Book 11 teaser. The number eleven was depicted in lavender (a light purple), but then the book ended up being crimson.(Credit:Wiki User Christianr2016)

    If that is the case that the series is using the a recolored version of the 7 books (Book 1 to book 7) that would mean the series is about to end is does feel its building up for an ending this was hinted in The Hard Luck book and they used the color green for that book which would debunk the recoloring pattern

    • Based on the previous books, I predict it will suck. I left a comment on the page saying this: "*The long haul was unrealistic. It also reminds me of how much I hate road trips or traveling in general (it's just boring as hell to me). The movie was worse.

      • Old school was ok but the pig was unrealistic. My pug can kinda stand on her back legs, but only for 3 seconds and only if you have food. And how the hell did the kids use their wifi while camping in the woods? The woods usually don't have signal.
      • Double down sucked until the movie making. They could've kept the movie making pages but left the first 200 or so on a tree to build a shelter for the homeless or something.
      • The getaway was a disappointment. Another book reminding me of how awful travel is. It was unrealistic as Greg skipped across the water in one scene and the immature choices made by the Heffley's. The director of fun was annoying. Only good thing I can think of is the pig didn't appear."

      I can guess that what happens is Greg mentions an unrealistic way of how he will have a kid (in the getaway he said he would release it when it's 5 or so). The pig was unrealistic, this time it's probably gonna go flippin skiing.

      And why was Greg still in middle school? It's like no one in the book ever ages. Unless his middle school has 9th grade.

    • Most of the books is suppose to be relateable I agree The Pig is really uncessary as an example The Pig having it's own which is ridiculous and I rather have Sweetie replace it anytime

      The Long Haul book which kind of work well the first time but in The Getaway book it kind of doesn't work too good it feels like the first 30 pages of that book were unneeded and pacing near the end of the book feels rush like what they did in Double Down and the part where Greg or his family getting in trouble or bad is going to happen is getting predictable

      Jeff Kinney stated that the series is timeless.

Here is what I said in a comment 17 days ago: “The number eleven was depicted in lavender (a light purple), but then the book ended up being crimson.” Looks nothing similar to when you said “The number eleven was depicted in lavender (a light purple), but then the book ended up being crimson.” You cannot just copy and paste someone else’s idea and not give credit for it.

      Dude you don't need permission to use quotes.

      I never once stated that I wanted permission. You’re correct that permission is (generally) not necessary, but credit should always be given one way or another when copying another’s text or image. I was not saying that this user needed to ask me permission before taking my quote, I just wanted the credit I deserved.

      On wikis, this is not incredibly important, but when it comes to things like school or work, copying others’ text without credit is known as plagiarism and can result in massive consequences. Plagiarism has gotten people fired from their jobs, and has had large Twitter accounts removed for stealing content. I apologize for being so uptight in my previous comment, however, it was still only fair that I received the credit for my thought and statement.

      This user has since given me credit in their article and the issue has been resolved.

      First of all, Greg is in 8TH grade now (1st book was 5th grade, 2nd & 3rd books were 6th grade, 5th, 6th, 7th & 8th books were 7th grade, and 10th & 11th books were 8th grade). The getaway was during winter break. Second of all, diary of a wimpy kid is realistic fiction. And those types of books CAN have a bit of unrealistic moments in it. Such as a pet pig who can somehow walk on two legs.

      He was in 6th grade in book 1

    • Every DOAWK character is timeless. They don't age. I am sure Greg is around 13-14 and stays there all along.

        Loading editor
    • I think due to the we get information we do know Greg should be at the age of 12 at the book 1 to book 3 though Greg only aged once despite him only showing his birthday or cover about his birthday on his Diary/Jounal which would make him be in the 6th in first book and the 7th grade presumably in the Rodrick Rules book pr Ugly Truth Greg seems to address to the kids above his grade was as "8th graders" which suggest he is not in the 8th grade.

      Another possibility is that Greg might be in the 7th even before events the first book which was supported by the by a page on the first book which where Greg mentioned that he remembered the cheese being on the basket court for since last spring this only for the books however abd doesn't fit well on the film adaptions

        Loading editor
    • Maybe his middle school has 9th grade, Rodrick got held back, and Manny just acts like a toddler. Maybe he aged in book 1-Rodrick rules but we didn't know. Same with the long haul-old school.

    • Greg only aged once which is in the dog days book he is still in the 7th Grade since book 2 up until book 10 where Greg stated that he feels he is in the middle school for like forever although middle school always takes place in 6th to 8th grade though yes the film adaption stated what grade Greg is in however it is not canon to the main book series.

        Loading editor
    • It could be possible his middle school has 9th grade. Maybe a rare occasion? Plus, just because we don't see his birthday doesn't mean he doesn't age. He could've aged but not wrote it in his diary.

    • In my opinion the Double Down and The Getaway books is kind of decent and these two particular books have a really bad pacing due to it being cramped into 217 page limit which is hurting the series' quality but

      It's noticable that Jeff Kinney wanted write a longer subplots or story but rushed or executed badly but yeah he did stated befored he have no intention of making the books longer tham atleast 217 pages which imo is not a good call on Jeff's part

      And I agree The Pig is unneeded in the series is basically like Sparky from Fairly Odd Parents it dissapeared without any explaination but most people believed that its due the hate the character Sparky is getting from show's fans the same thing might have happened to the Pig due to its absence in The Getaway book based what path Jeff Kinney is taking the Book 13 but let's hope it will a good a one :)

The Long Haul is the worst out of the series. Old School was decent. Double Down sucked and they only needed to keep the pages from the movie making scene, and use the other 200 pages or so to keep on the tree and use it to build a shelter for the homeless for something. The Getaway was a disappointment and a waste of my money that I used to buy it.

      They got a new actor to play the new Rodrick in The Long Haul film which was played by Charlie Wright in my opinion Devon Bostick could have been a better actor he didnt really look that old to play the role as Rodrick again people seem to make jokes on the new Rodrick (Charlie Wright) that he looked similar LeafyIsHere.

      Is doesnt help that the article relating to Rodrick on this wiki doesn't try to update picture/gallery regarding the new Rodrick i could only assume it because the backlash of some fans going as far as to spam #NotMyRodrick on some articles on the wiki

      Is the 9th grade still count as a being in middle school The books actually takes in Massachusets since Jeff Kinney built it his store on Plainville despite there having another called Plainview the bools hinted that the middle school Greg attends have 6th to 8th grade in Cabin Fever he did recall a flashback of a spring cleaning the 8th graders did which implies that Greg is in the 6th grade when that happened (probably that flashback takes place in book 1 Greg did occasionally skip months or days in his journal.

      It's still possible that Jeff Kinney let Greg aged once on the books Dog Days which would make him 13 it wont so it source make sense time only pass a year in Greg universe someone on the wiki actually amke a timeline about it and a quote supposedly from Jeff Kinney stating "I worked out a system that every 4 years in our world, in Greg's world one year passes. So since I wrote the diary in 2003, Greg's basically still in 2006."

    • Warning, spoilers! My opinions on the book:

      • The part about climate change and Greg's Malta project didn't really have much to do with the rest of the book. They could've been cut to make room for the actual conflict of the book.
      • Rowley peeing behind a rock (No, I'm not joking) was disgusting. I don't know if it's worse than the vomit in Double Down, but it was still gross and unconnected to the rest of the plot.
      • The pig was written out of the series, it seems.
      • I was hoping that the Screen-Free Weekends and Manny babysitting plots would actually go somewhere, but they didn't.
      • Snowman Fregley and Manny running away while being babysat by Greg in a winter setting gave me serious Wimpy Wonderland vibes.
      • I liked seeing more of the kids on Surrey Street, but where's Nasty Pants?
      • The climax felt a little rushed. I think Jeff Kinney was running out of pages at that point.
      • Seeing the Mingo kids again was pretty cool.
      • I like how this book actually goes in a different direction than Cabin Fever.

    • Greg says in one line "I'll be riding a camel to high school", that is if you go to high school. They need to make the characters age.

    • He should've been in high school in Old School, unless he didn't pass somehow

    • Maybe their middle school has 9th grade. I've heard of middle schools having 9th grade. If he is not in high school in the next book, that means they don't age.

      Maybe his other birthdays happened out of his diary (Book 1 between Rodrick Rules and The Long Haul between Old School), but if he is not in high school by the next book where he starts school (Book 16 probably), then you are right.

      The snow ball war wasnt really dragged on for way too long to fit in the epilogue for the last few pages.I also think Greg is in the 8th Grade but this book vaguely mention what year his in

      I'm the opposite of you about that. Personally, those 50 pages or so were terrible. I wish less of the book was the whole Surrey Street war.

    • I used to think that the whole "Greg lives on a hill now" thing was a little shoehorned-in, but it made a lot more sense after I remembered the lemonade stand scene of Old School. That scene heavily implied that Greg lived on a hill, and I guess The Meltdown just confirmed it.

      The "tickle spot" joke was re-used from the expanded do-it-yourself book. It sounded familiar when I first read the book, but then I checked my copy of the DIY book, and it turns out that the joke was copied word-for-word.

      I think this book is gonna be demoted from good to decent. It spends way too much time messing around and not actually talking about the snowball fight, which was the best part. The book ends with only two pages of resolution, which leaves me feeling like nothing was really accomplished or resolved from all this.
