Maisie had always looked forward to spending summer break at the beach with her family and the family of her mom's best friend. However, this year's vacation was off to a terrible start. Her father was absent, and her best friend was gaining the attention of Maisie's long time crush. But, oddly enough, it was her mandatory writing assignment, which helped Maisie through it all. Who knew that completing her school discovery journal would lead to Maisie discovering herself.
This book was pure joy for me! I swear! I had a smile on my face from beginning to end, and here are five reasons I found this book such an utter delight.
1. Maisie was fantastic! I swear, if Maisie was a real person, I would want to be her friend. She was witty and kind, and her observations, though usually delivered in a humorous way, were spot on.
