Summary Of The Book
In Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, the second book of the Diary Of A Wimpy Kid franchise, the protagonist, Greg Heffley, returns after a long summer to face a new year in school. He is thankful that the humiliating summer is behind him and does all that he can to forget those three long months, and one incident in particular.
As it turns out, secrets are hard to keep, especially when there’s a diary floating around. And unfortunately for Greg, his older brother Rodrick knows all about the embarrassing thing that happened to Greg.
Armed with such a valuable secret, Rodrick now holds the upper hand and is determined to play it to his advantage. Given the evil mind he has, he threatens to tell everyone, making Greg squirm with fear. Amidst all this, Greg continues to hang out with Rowley, and the two keep getting into trouble for some mischief or the other. And all the time, Rodrick’s threat to spill the beans hangs like a sword over his head.
Greg’s ‘coolness’ now rests in the hands of Rodrick. The year might well turn out to be a long one for Greg, who is worried about keeping his reputation intact.
