BOOK REVIEW: What Matters Most: Diary Of A Teenage Girl


Like most sixteen year olds, Maya Stark has a life full of roller coaster emotions and drama.

Maya finds herself the victim of bullying at the hands of popular cheerleader Vanessa Hartman, who is jealous because her boyfriend Wyatt is attracted to Maya. To counteract Vanessa’s “mean girl” behavior, Maya’s friends suggest that she start dating her ex-boyfriend Dominic, who she is still friends with.

Add to this emotionally exhausting mix a brain damaged hospitalized friend, a mother who’s in prison, Maya's emancipation, a budding music career with a Christian band and a deep yearning for normal – whatever that may be.

Because Maya is into recycling and green living, her “Green Tip For The Day” is interspersed throughout the book which I was thought was a unique addition.

A Readers Group Guide is also available in the back of the book, as well as information about the real Anna Gilbert whose song lyrics are used in the book.
