Mia and her brother, Chris, continue to have a love-hate relationship. They love to act like they hate each other. That's why, with Mia's best friend and boyfriend gone for the summer, Mia reluctantly takes a summer job. It's only working as a stage crew member for a children's theater group but it gets her out of the house every day. How bad could that be?

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.

Fifteen years old Mia fears this is going to be the summer of her discontent. Her best friend Lisa is off to some brainy camp and her boyfriend Tim is in Maine visiting his grandparents while she remains in Des Moines. She assesses her options, Mia concludes she can spend her vacation time being the butt of her younger brother Chris¿ pranks or she can escape the house by finding a job although employment for a young teen is not easy to find. --- 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. --- Harriet Klausner
