I'm in love with the protagonist, Maggie, a naive, ambitious, & funny young girl who is entering middle school with ambitions to become the next president of the United States. At school, when she finds herself alone at the lunch table, she isn't at all anxious; instead, she takes out her class syllabus and marks due dates on her calendar with each class marked in a corresponding color. At home, Maggie doesn't always get along with her "girly" older sister, but her family is tight-knit and supportive. Maggie's father, has a wheelchair, sharp wit, and a knowledge of all things "cool," including vinyl records. As Maggie learns that her father's disability is more serious than she imagined, she feels the first pangs of understanding that her parents are fallible mortal beings. Instead of fearing the worst, Maggie is empowered with a fiercer, empathetic love. ~ Reviewed by Bonnie Winchester
