Mary Margaret is a spunky ten-year-old girl with a tough mission. Her mother has asked her to accompany her recently widowed grandmother on a cruise to the Greek Islands. Mary Margaret wonders if she'll really be able to help her grandma get the rest, relaxation, and recuperation she needs, or if she'll just be in the way on this seniors-only cruise.

I read MMM in one go. simply because I fell in love with Mary Margaret from the beginning. She is so likeable, with so much depth. Many times throughout the book, I thought back of when I was a little girl spending time with my grandmother. Good books take us to other places and this book did just that for me.
I loved especially how Mary Margaret is so open with us in the book as she shares her worries, fears, guilt, dreams, crushes and hopes. The diary style gives us a chance to get to know MMM

I bought it for my ten-year old granddaughter and I think she will enjoy it very much.

It is a quick easy read with sadness and fun and lots of childish questions. A ten=year old and loses her grandfather and goes with her grandmother on a trip to Greece that was planned for Grandma and Grandpa, meets people, has some adventures. She loves mermaids and pretty things and attends a wedding in a special way.

What a sweet book! This is a great read for kids, especially girls, 10 and under. Mary Margaret is a wonderful and vivid character, with a strong voice, and the reader is easily pulled into her adventures. The author deals with big issues such as death and guilt and mourning with a kind and gentle touch, making for a very accessible and lovely read, for kid or adult alike.
