Mackenzie Blue :: Book Review

Courtesy Of HarperCollinsPublishers

Author: Tina Wells

This brand-new book by author Tina Wells is cute as can be with its hot-pink hard cover and cartoon drawing of the main character Mackenzie Blue all dressed up in her school uniform. But will its insides measure up to how great it looks on the outside?

Secret’s Out
When Mackenzie Blue, or Zee, as she likes to be called, enters Grade 7, she knows it will be a hard adjustment. Not only is she going to brand-new school with brand-new teachers and classmates she doesn’t know, Zee’s best friend in the world, Ally, recently moved away to France.


To make matters worse, Zee somehow manages to lose her secret diary on the first day of school. When she walks into her music class and sees some private entries from her diary written in huge letters on the dry erase board, she is totally and completely mortified. Then she starts thinking: who could possibly have her diary? And whoever that person is, why is he or she being so mean to her by exposing her secrets to the entire world?


Another problem is that Zee really wants to be a big pop star when she grows up, and she’s been working really hard on a song for the Teen Sing competition being held at school. Unfortunately, the song is written in her missing diary!


With the help of her music teacher Mr. P. and her brother Adam, Zee writes a whole new song from scratch- which turns out to be even more awesome than the first! At the Teen Sing competition, the entire audience goes crazy for Zee’s hit song!


Tween Scene
This is a really great book for young readers, especially tweens. Its full of modern-day references every kid will understand and be able to relate to. The book is full of cute drawings, illustrations, handwritten notes and instant message conversations. You’ll really get a feel for the fashions and music tastes of Zee and her friends at school.


You’ll also love the main message (or morale) of the book: stay true to your goals and dreams, no matter what obstacles you may have to overcome to achieve them. Most importantly, stay true to yourself! Not all people who act like friends really are, not all big brothers are dorks and your true friends will show you who they really are by their actions not just their words.

But I wanted to argue against the female extremists, who's favorite phrase is "It's because I'm a woman, isn't it?". No, its not because of that. But a lot of women still feel entitled to the same things men are more equipped with. I think you're missing who I am applying this to. Is it wrong to find this amusing? There certainly are female extremist, claiming that they're feminists. Males do this as well.  Not that there's anything wrong with this, but the title "feminist" gives the impression that you are for women's rights. Funny,  when you hear of masculinists... people aren't always as accepting. I am a girl, but I'm not a feminist. We should be for equal rights, not just the protection of those of one gender. (Sorry! I trailed off a bit... :/ )
