Review: Mia the Magnificent

Title: Mia the Magnificent
Author: Eileen Boggess
Pages: 161
Genre: YA
Source: Bancroft Press- Many thanks to Harrison for sending me a copy to review!

Synopsis (from Goodreads):

After one summer at the Little Tykes Theatre, Mia Fullerton is meek no more, but that doesn t make her life any easier not in her sophomore year at St. Hilary's, when her best friend Lisa forces her into a dangerously big part in The Music Man. Not when her ex-boyfriend, Tim, is teaching her little brother Chris to treat women like objects. And not when she learns to drive with serious repercussions. Who is Mia?

My Thoughts:
Mia is a girl that I truly enjoy reading about. In this third installment of the series, we find Mia going through the typical teen years. Liking boys that like someone else. Liking boys that cheat on you. Having girls hate you for no good reason. Siblings that get on your nerves, and parents that still won't give you too much freedom, even though she just got her driving license! Mia the Magnificent is a fun, quick read and at times made me laugh out loud. I think Mia would appeal to 12-15 year-old age range because she's still pretty innocent and not naughty enough for that older crowd who is looking for something grittier. I look forward to the next book and to see what life has in store for Mia during her Junior year.

    I wish that I knew someone in that age range to suggest the book too.

  8. I like your thoughts on this one, especially your reasons for recommending it for 12-15 year olds. I appreciate your opinion in YA books. I have an eleven-year-old granddaughter and I often buy books for her and give her recommendations on books. This one is going on the list for next year.
