Maggie Bean in Love

For Ages: 9 - 13
  • customer reviews
At the start of 8th grade, Maggie Bean is really, truly, 100% happy. She's successfully maintained her weight, moved into a beautiful house her family actually owns, and -- best of all -- fallen in love. That's right--love. The real kind, with actual dates, hand holding, laughing and wishing every perfect moment would never end. Maggie wants nothing more than to bask in the joy of having a boyfriend, being a girlfriend and enjoying eighth grade. But eighth grade is serious -- it's one year closer to high school, college and the rest of her life, and Maggie has a lot to do: academic clubs, the swim team, the Patrol This weight-loss club... On top of that, she is striving to the best friend, daughter, and sister she can be (not to mention girlfriend). Balancing everything requires a lot of careful planning and organizing--and, this time, Maggie's Master Mult-Tasker might not be enough. Can she handle the pressure? Can she be everything to everybody--including herself? And will her new relationship survive while she's figuring it all out?
