Rachel is the undisputed matriarch of her large family. She has devoted herself to her three sons all their lives.

Greg Heffley's journal / by Jeff Kinney

Diary of a wimpy kid : Rodrick rules / by Jeff Kinney
"Whatever you do, don't ask Greg Heffley about his summer vacation. As Greg enters the new school year, he's eager to put the events of the past three months behind him . . . and one event in particular. Greg knows that his survival in middle school depends on his ability to keep the details of that incident under wraps. Unfortunately for Greg, his older brother Rodrick knows about his secret, and would be happy to spill the beans should Greg step out of line. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules chronicles Greg's attempts to navigate the hazards of middle school, impress the girls, steer clear of the school talent show, and most important, to keep his secret safe. But secrets have a way of getting out, especially when a diary is involved." -- Provided by publisher. Also available as an audiobook.
