As befits a future President of the United States of America, Maggie Mayfield has decided to write a memoir of the past year of her life. And what a banner year it’s been! During this period she has been Student of the Month on a regular basis, an official shareholder of Coca-Cola stock, and the defending Science Fair champion. Most importantly, though, this is the year Maggie has to pull up her bootstraps (the family motto) and finally learn why her cool-dude dad is in a wheelchair, no matter how scary that is. Full of instantaneously relatable characters, The Meaning of Maggie is a story about how growing up is an adventure that lets us strengthen the best parts of ourselves and reaffirms the importance of family.
