Maggie Bean in Love by Tricia Rayburn

Rayburn, Tricia Maggie Bean in Love, 282 p. Aladdin Mix (Simon), 2010.  $5.99.  Content: G.  Maggie is ready to start 8th grade and to start her relationship with Arnie.  But 8th grade also starts lots of challenges.  The Patrol This group is three time as big as the original – how is Maggie going to entertain all of those little kids and get them acting and eating healthily?  The swim team may lose use of the pool to the Water Wings, because the school board is drastically cutting expenses.  And Arnie doesn’t seem to be as into their relationship as Maggie is – what can she do to spark his interest?  Maggie sure has a full plate!  Maggie is really adorable – and her talk about eating healthily is not intrusive at all, but instead is very realistic.   This is a great softcover series for the middle school.  MS – ADVISABLE.
