Diary of a Wimpy Kid – The Ugly Truth by Jeff Kinney

Lets face it: Greg Heffley will never change his wimpy ways. Somebody just needs to explain that to Gregs father. You see, Frank Heffley actually thinks he can get his son to toughen up, and he enlists Greg in organized sports and other “manly” endeavors. Of course, Greg is able to easily sidestep his fathers efforts to change him. But when Gregs dad threatens to send him to military academy, Greg realizes he has to shape up . . . or get shipped out.  [Excerpt from Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Book 5, Jeff Kinney]
