Maggie bean in love by Tricia Rayburn is an ok book. It's about a girl in 8th grade who really wants a boyfriend. She's fallen in love with one boy and the whole book is basically about her trying to make him fall in love with her too.

I didn't really understand or enjoy this book since it was the 3rd to a series I didn't read. I assume if you read the others you would like it though.

I would recommend it to someone who had read it and likes love books. It just didn't fascinate me as much as I t

Im still reading this book but it gets me thinking about nothing but the book. It makes me lose track of time! I love romance books like this for some reason :) I love the part where Arnie and Maggie are on their first date after being friends for awhile. The part where they have a weight watchers club doesnt really make sense to me based on what the book is about i think they just needed something to talk about in the book and it doesnt make sense to me.

This third book in the Maggie Bean series is yet another positive read for tween girls. Maggie is an excellent role model, as someone who has struggled with weight issues and come out with a positive and healthy body image. She is also an academically driven and responsible young girl, a supportive friend... (click for full review

Yes, I am cranky (leave me alone). However, my friend was entirely right when she said that this book sucked. I've read better. Mix books just aren't for me.

This book was alright, but I probably shouldn't have waited so long to read it. I would've loved it two years ago, but now I just found it hard to get through.
