I read this one over the weekend - the used bookstore had almost all of the CD books, brand new. So I bought them, even though I have all of them back in Michigan. That's not really relevant though.
So this book: I really really like it, until the end. I though the whole "i have a problem like my mom" was kind of understated. I suppose that's because it's a diary instead of an actual narration of what happened.
I felt really bad for Maggie's family in this book also. I think there are some parts of her life that I really identify with and some that I don't. (clearly, my father is not a hollywood producer).

I teared up a little reading this again, especially at the end with the angel! The poem she started writing about the angel could definitely turn into a powerful poem about her relationship with her mom. Maggie feels like a very real character with all her insecurities.
I am always confused as to why her new asymmetrical haircut was a big deal. This girl had a GREEN RAT TAIL before! I for one would be pleased as punch at my daughter's new hair if the old one was so horrendous!
