Poor Maggie. She's only a teen but is faced with problems no one ever wants to see. She's challenged with the fact she has anorexia, a devistating eating disorder. Her mother is an alcoholic and to top it all off, her father is trying to make her something she'll never be.
This story makes you realize that even having a tremendous amount of money like Maggie's family, its not all that wonderful. Especially in Maggie's case!
I can never put down California Diary books because they are so interesting! Ann M. Martin is an excellent author of this series and I recommend it to everyone! The author's got a great idea of what goes on in our minds!

Format: Paperback
This is a really great, well-written book about a 13-year old girl who is having difficulties in her life. The diary is wonderful, with tremendous detail. The good part is, like real diaries, that there isn't an ending--you must read other books that help you understand all the people's lives better. Maggie in the book has an eating disorder, her mother is an alchoholic and her father is trying to make her into something she's not. It's a very wonderful book that you should read. Afterwards, you might want to read Amalia, Diary 2 , because Amalia in the book talks a lot about Maggie and how she's trying to help.

Format: Paperback
The book is very intresting and keeps you away of the illnesses of anorexia and bulimia because you realize that those problems are very very serious and I think that's really important and Ann M. Martin is doing a favor to everyone that reads the book. She is a great writer. 'Bout the book if Maggie keeps on thinking that she's fat, I think (though it can't be) she's going to disappear!!! READ THIS BOOK IT IS REALLY INTRESTING

I got the book and read it in one fourth of a day. The way the writer writes the story you feel like you are acutally there watching her with the desperate cry of help she doesn't relize she is giving.While her brother is gone it get worse that's all I'm going to say. I do not want to spoil a great book like this one.

I like California Diaries a lot, but I love BSC. I'm really tired of people always saying how bad the BSC are and how unrealstic they are. Who ever said BSC books were supposed to be realistic in the first place? And California Diaries aren't exaclty real life either. I mean, come on. These kids are depressed all of the time. Almost nothing good happens to them. Baby-sitters Club isn't ALWAYS "happily ever after." Okay, so maybe they aren't "realistic". Why should it be? Isn't there enough realism in our lives? I'd really appreciate it if people would stop dissing the BSC. You never see a BSC fan dissing a California Diaries fan do you? If you like California Diares, that's great. If you HATE BSC, then that's okay, but don't make it so rude and public where the whole on-line community can see it!

This book is basically about a girl who is trying to ignore the fact that she has several problems...a mom who is an alchoholic and that she has an eating disorder, too name a few. but she was very courageous and at the end it is good because she still has some hope for herself, but she doesn't know who to turn to for help. That's why you should read the next book, Amalia Diary two.

This book is really, really good. It seemed so real to me that I just wanted to slap Maggie around and tell her to wake up or something! I read it in one day, which is what I always do with the California Diaries series books. I am really excited and can't wait until Amalia diary two comes out!

Format: Paperback
Maggie is a teenage girl who is like a lot of other teenagers who aren't happy with her looks. Maggie thinks that she is really fat even though she is about to disappear, so she stops eating. Besides being aneroxic, her mom is an alcoholic and she has to help her with a benefit because she can't handle it because of her drinking. Then she volenteers at an animal shelter and on top of all that she is the lead singer in a garage band. And she also contradicts herself in that by saying she can't sing even though everyone loves her singing. Then she has a huge crush on the new guitar player in her band and he asks her out on a date and bearly eats at all. Will Maggie start having faith in herself or start eating? For the answer to that you'll have to read this book and I suggest you do because you could see how a person in this situation thinks and see how she gets through her hard times.
