From School Library Journal

Ms. Boggess is absolutely gifted at finding humor in the everyday misadventures of a typical teen. Her dialogue crackles with realism and wit. Mia feels like the girl next door . . . if the girl is klutzy and hilarious and appealingly offbeat. --Jill Esbaum, Author of Stink Soup, Ste-e-e-e-eamboat A-Comin'!, Estelle Takes a Bath, and To the Big Top
You thought Mia the Meek was funny? Well, Mia the Melodramatic is double funny, with sprinkles on top. The old cast is back: well-intended-but-embarrassing parents, pain-in-the-butt brother, sweet-and-sexy Tim. But who's that standing in the wings, waiting to complicate Mia's summer? Eric? And his Goth cousin Zoe? Join Mia for a summer of romance and craziness that will keep you laughing till the curtain drops. --Sharelle Byars Moranville, Author of Purple Ribbon, Over the River, A Higher Geometry, and The Snows --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Mia obtains work at Little Tyke's where her role is coming off the bench to replace youthful stage frightened actors; that is when she is not mortifying herself as Playtime Pal the clown. As Tim dates a New England teen, heartbroken Mia considers going out with attractive fellow troupe member Eric.
The heroine has come a long way from MIA THE MEEK as she does things she could not have done before like performing on stage and overcoming a broken heart to dive back into the dating pool. What stays the same is the amusing sibling war with Chris as she matches him prank for prank; young readers will be on the alert when it comes to their breakfast. Yet by summer's end there is a truce of sorts between the battling sibs. Young adult fans will enjoy the lighthearted MIA THE MELODRAMATIC as the star deals with several relationship calamities although never that deeply.
If only she knew...
First of all, there are the unusual people that she must work with at this job--definitely not her choice of people to spend days with. On top of that, the more she works there, the more her job transforms into less than just being a stage hand. Might she have to perform? Wear a costume? Mia certainly hopes not. And ugh! Working for a children's theater group actually means working with--children.
In addition to her busy days, she wonders why her boyfriend isn't sending her emails. What's wrong with him? Was he having too much fun without her? And when she does hear from him, her fears could possibly be true.
Her summer is spent with countless disasters, annoying pranks from her brother, many doubts, and accomplishments. Mia may even realize that sometimes not getting what you want can be a good thing, people aren't always what you originally thought, and sometimes the things you dread aren't so bad after all.
Join Mia during her very dramatic summer.

Mia the Melodramatic was the one exception. After she'd read a bit of it, I asked if she liked it. She said, "No, I don't like it. I love it!"
So, Mia meets my daughter's exceptionally high standards. Get this book for your child today!
In this addition, Mia is not looking forward to the tedious, boring summer that is sure to ensue, because of the fact Tim, as well as Lisa, are leaving her for the summer. Though, soon enough, she is given the chance to work at Little Tykes, the local community summer with Eric, former shy boy turned out going hottie, Henry, Eric's best friend, and Zoe, a girl who has 16 piercings along with goth attire and an attitude that seems to be leading to the making of the "Join if you think Mia is a preppy princess!" club. This leaves Mia to wonder how on earth she'll make it through the summer, especially when a secret about Tim, one that may change everything, comes pouring on out.
Mia is yet again an overly likable character with a great and funny out look on life. I really enjoyed seeing how she broke out of her shell even more in this addition, as well as the drama that ensued with her employment and the new friends she made. My favorite out of her new group would have to be Zoe, a girl whose sarcasm provided to always be funny and fierce. Eric and Henry were also great additions, though I really would have liked more depth to Henry, because I often had trouble remember who exactly he was; a bad sign, no? Tim, though, was the one who brought down my liking of this novel.Read more ›
