A major theme that runs through most of the Wimpy Kid series is the need for most of the characters to fit in. Sticking out or acting like an individual is something that none of them want at this juncture because it invites ridicule, alienation, and bullying. Greg tries many things to try and fit in at school. First, he fixates on Holly Hills because she is one of the most popular girls. Greg thinks that by going with her he will be vaulted into the cool group. The trouble with this is that she doesn't know who he is and barely acknowledges his presence.
