Mia the Magnificent book. Mia the Magnificent is the third book in The Mia Fullerton Series by Eileen Boggess. Having not read the two previous books. Mia the Meek and Mia the Melodramatic, I feared that it would be hard to get into this one.

Eileen Boggess's Mia the Meek is fast-paced fun. Boggess's characters, especially spunky Mia, are quirky and well-drawn, and the lively plot sweeps them from one misadventure to another. By the book's conclusion, Mia has almost reinvented herself, leaving Boggess's readers anxious for Mia's next adventure. Mia the Meek is an amazing, extremely hilarious, laugh-out-loud book with an acceptable amount of romance. I highly recommend it. This is the first book in the Mia Fullerton series, and I can t wait to read.

series The Mia Fullerton Series. After one summer at the Little Tykes Theatre, Mia Fullerton is meek no more, but that doesn't make her life any easier-not in her sophomore year at St. Hilary's, when her best friend Lisa forces her into a dangerously big part in The Music Man.

What’s he going to do for money?. Mr. Bodey’s used to driving around in yellow cars. Maybe he can be a delivery guy for Cluck a Buck, Tim replied. Jake smacked his lips.

Mia the Magnificent is the third book in The Mia Fullerton Series by Eileen Boggess. This was not the case. This could easily be read and enjoyed without having read the previous books. Mia is a sophomore at St. Hilary's. Eileen Boggess has written a very good series for teens with all the drama of high school minus the drugs, drinking and sex that parents might not want their children reading about. If you are looking for an entertaining, more innocent look at high school (Catholic Private School) this is a good choice.

Mia Fullerton has entered her freshman year at St. Hilary’s with a goal: to lose her nickname, "Mia the Meek," and soar into a confident high school career. Unfortunately, her transformation is made harder by her English-teacher mom, bratty little brother, already popular nemesis, and new neighbor. Although she’s prepared herself for the battle by reading Excruciatingly Shy: How to Defeat Public Fear and Become Popular, her freshman year remains a series of uphill battles. The week before school starts, Mia first encounters Tim―the handsome yet seemingly arrogant oldest son of the new family next door. Their relationship develops based on competition―from literature to the basketball court―and Mia’s got her work cut out for her. In Mia, author Eileen Boggess has created the best kind of modern female role model―the kind who sees most of her flaws and wants to change them; one who’s not only intelligent but athletic; and one who’s trying to find her way through a very awkward time in life. In telling her story, Mia proves to be a witty, quick, candid, and interesting fourteen-year-old.

It's not a secret by now, but I have to say once again how much I adore this series. It's funny; it's fab; it's real. Just all around greatness. And Mia the Magnificent? How was that one you may ask. Well, it was just like it's prequels, and fortunately tons better than the second one, which was close to being the definition of a sophomore slump.

In Mia the Magnificent, Mia's life is once again chaotic because of several factors. For one, she finally is given the chance to get her license, which spells F-R-E-D-O-M to her. Secondly, she's unsure about her feelings for not only Eric, gentleman to the bone and guy she's considering a relationship with, and Tim, the guy who broke her heart but still feels romantic feelings towards. Add in a crazy girl with 16 piercings, her genius best friend's break up, and more of her brother's pranks, it's starting to seem sophomore year will be the complete opposite of smooth sailing.

One of the aspects I love most about this series is that Mia and her problems always seem like real normal things that teens her age deal with, because from nasty breakups, to shyness problems, to arguing with her best friend, it's all here within the pages of the Mia Fullerton series. In this addition specifically, I once again liked how Mia dealt with her problems with Tim in a mature way. Also, as like the previous additions, this was one book that's crazy antics always left me with a smile on my face.

The plot of this always had me on my feet, eager to find out what would occur next because of all the crazy things that would occur. Though, while I love action as much as the next person,I sometimes felt that everything happened a little too coincidentally. Since it often felt that Boggess was throwing in all these items just to keep the plot moving without giving each enough time. But overall, it wasn't the biggest of problems, since I still did enjoy the book quite a bit. Lastly, Boggess's writing was as smooth as always.

In all, Mia the Magnificent proved to be a funny book filled with characters you can't help but love and lots of heart. I can't wait to read the next addition!

Mia the Magnificent - first of all, I have to say that I absolutely love the title! If the title doesn't grab you, the cover is sure to, with its vibrancy and visual appeal!

Mia the Magnificent is the third in the Mia Fullerton series by Eileen Boggess, a delightfully fun story collection geared toward young adults. The first is Mia the Meek and the second is Mia the Melodramatic. Even though I did not read the first two in this great series, I had absolutely no trouble coming in on the third installment. It is because of this that I feel that each book could easily be read as a stand-alone, though I do sincerely hope to go back and read the first two.

Being a teen is difficult - being a teen girl is even more difficult! Eileen Boggess does a superb job tapping into the teen girl psyche and creating a wonderful, fun and easy to relate to story. Mia is a typical girl, dealing with boys, getting her driver's license and trying to find out just who she is. Mia's character is awesome, as are all of the characters. Such as in society, today, Ms. Boggess brings together very different teen personalities and brings each one to life. There is the goth friend of Mia, Zoe, the "perfect girl next door" Lisa, the mega-slang-talking ex-boyfriend, Jake, the "God's gift to woman" ex-boyfriend, Tim, and the possible future boyfriend, Eric, who is wonderful in every way.

As if dealing with every day life isn't enough, the very first day that Mia receives her driver's license, she is transfixed by the "evil" ex-boyfriend, Tim, who is riding beside her, as they make their way back from the movies (Mia just happened to lose a bet and had to chauffeur him around). Faces inch closer and closer for an unplanned kiss, there is a nerve jolting jarring and then darkness. What a heck of a kiss, right?! Well, no, not exactly from the kiss, but it turns out from a car crashing into Mia's driver side, as she cruises right through a stop sign. Oh, how is she going to explain this to her parents?!

Filled with humor, humanity and real life, Mia the Magnificent is an engaging, delightful and wonderful book for pre-teens through adults. This is a can't miss series that will bring smiles to faces and relief to hearts, knowing that Mia is just like them, an average ordinary teen, dealing with anything but average ordinary problems.

After her summer immersed in acting while she worked at a children's theater group (in the previous book MIA THE MELODRAMATIC), Mia is psyched to try acting in plays at school. It doesn't hurt that her best friend is the student director. Or does it? Trying a small part in a play is way different than having the lead.

Of course, there is never just one problem in Mia's life. Never.

There's the ex-boyfriend who is a being a negative influence on her already-corrupt little brother, her other boy crush, the fact that Mia wants to be independent from boys, attempting to get her driver's license, and the confusion when the ex-boyfriend tries wooing Mia as well as two other girls and she doesn't know what to do.

About any of the problems.

Mia tries to make good decisions and bravely (sometimes) struggles to do the right thing. Such is Mia's dramatic life. As you read you will relate to the overwhelming feelings of adolescence and the absurdity of how one attempt to solve a problem can lead to another.

And just when Mia thinks she has everything figured out, just as in life, time moves on and changes everything. That's when it's magnificent to know who you really are. Hopefully, Mia has herself figured out.

This is the third book in the series featuring Mia Fullerton, but it can also be read independently.
