Maggie by Ann M. Martin

In this book, Maggie, the main character, deals with lots of pressure. Her parents pressure her to be perfect. Also, in school, she feels the need to be perfect and get good grades. She studies all the time and never has time for anything else. Her parents are rarely home, too. Yet in the end, she finds a way to pull herself together.

I sat down to read this book, and I ended up reading the whole thing at the same time. This was a really good book, and as I read it, I could picture myself as being the main character. This book helps the person reading it understand that they can't always please others. They have to please themselves, too. Cassie P.
