Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Third Wheel focusses on the important rite of passage in a teenager’s life, the school dance, and all the romance that goes with it. What will the young protagonist Greg Heffley do at this crucial juncture of his life? Greg being Greg is worried about not finding a date for the much awaited Valentine’s Day dance. Will he be left out of the action? Can he find his elusive partner in time? His entire life seems to be poised for this moment of discovery.

Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Third Wheel actually starts off on a nostalgic note with Greg chronicling his experiences in his mother’s womb. His infant days don't seem to fare any better as he is not interested in any of the educational videos his mother makes him watch. Preschool does not provide a better experience as he can't keep up with his classmates and is demoted from kindergarten back to preschool as he obviously can't fit in in a much higher educational environment. Can a kid with such a track record score well on what might be the biggest night of his life?

A fortunate twist of fate lands Rowley, Greg’s best friend, on the dance planning committee, giving Greg a small window of hope. Will Rowley be able to find a girl for his best buddy? Will this night of romance turn out the way Greg wants it to? Will cupid’s arrow strike or will it miss? Love is the most difficult journey after all, and this one will definitely leave its mark on the wimpy hero. The Wimpy Kid Series became so popular that it was turned into a successful movie franchise spinning off three commercially successful movies.
