    As a continuation of the second book, this novel rounds out the second (and last) half of Greg's seventh grade school year.

    The book starts with Greg's New Year's Day. The follow-up is Greg's Christmas. Similar to Christmas in the first book, he got nothing he likes from anyone. Uncle Charlie gave Greg a "laundry hoop" and Susan, inspired, starts making him do his own laundry. Due to Greg's laziness, he does not do his laundry. This plays a huge role later in the story.

    Mentioned early in the story, Frank Heffley is getting really fed up with Greg's "wimpy" ways. Also, the "baddest teenager on our street, Lenwood Heath" gets shipped out to military school, sparking an idea in Frank's head that plays a huge role in the story. Later, the Heffleys see Lenwood at a ticket booth with a crew cut, fancy and proper and incredibly polite. This causes Frank to decide to enroll Greg into military school, Spag Union, which takes place during Greg's summer vacation. Greg tries in vain to change his father's mind, such as doing activities such as soccer and Boy Scouts. However, they do not work. Therefore, Greg tries to impress Holly again, but it does not work at all. Finally, he settles for the sad fact he has to settle for Spag Union. But his summer won't be bad if he took some memories with him.

    Also mentioned earlier in the story, the Heffley's neighbors, the Snellas, are having a half-birthday for their youngest child Seth. During the party, the adults in the neighborhood have to perform silly acts and Mr. Snella sends the videotapes to America's Funniest Families, a spoof of America's Funniest Home Videos, to win the $10,000 prize. It is revealed that Frank hates the performing and will do anything to get out of it. On the day of the party, Manny throws Seth's present into a tree because he knew that Greg would snatch it away. It was a blue knit blanket. When Greg goes and retrieves it, his pants fall down revealing Wonder Woman underwear which he wore because it's one of the only clean garments he has left. Frank, who happened to be next in line to perform gets away as Mr. Snella points his camera to an embarrassed Greg. He repays Greg the next morning by not sending him to military school, suggesting there are other ways that Greg can stay fit.

    The story ends abruptly as Rowley and Greg are sitting on the curb and meet a girl named Trista. Greg thinks Trista is cute and imagines that she and himself are in Rowley's swim club in swimsuits with Rowley serving them drinks. He says that it's corny to end with a happy ending, but he is out of paper. Finally, he writes, "The End".
