Diary of a Teenage Girl: What Matters Most by Melody Carlson

Reading the last book of a 16 book series isn't the wisest of choices. Especially having not read any of the previous titles.

What Matters Most tells the story of teenager, Maya who is dealing with figuring out who she is and wants to be.

She has broken up with her boyfriend, yet remains friends. Maya is always having to put out friendship fires.

First a girl thinks Maya's trying to steal her ex-boyfriend. Then Maya's ex-boyfriend gets jealous of how much time she spends with this other guy.

It's quite confusing, being a teenage girl. Drama, drama, drama.

Maya has been learning guitar and decides to perform at an open mic night. Also playing is an all-girl band whose members are looking for a replacement. Maya is that person.

She joins the band and heads off on a tour.

Before all this happens, her mother gets out of jail and tries to mooch whatever she can from her starlet daughter.

But being in the band isn't exactly what Maya wants to do.

How in the world will she ever decide what to do?

This is the diary of a teenage girl.

Drama, drama, drama.

A bonus to the drama: after each chapter diary entry, you get a short tip on how to be environmentally minded with things you can do to keep the world clean.
