Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer MDG
Maggie Quinn is back and ready for action in the latest installment of the Maggie Quinn: Girl vs. Evil series. This time, Maggie is going to be a freshmen at college and is rushing a sorority. No, she's not interested in looking cool or meeting cute guys; she's trying to write a column for the school newspaper, even though they don't accept freshmen reporters. She continues through Rush, and onto becoming a pledge, trying to survive the expensive clothes and snobby girls just so she can write a hard-hitting expose. Along the way she discovers that sisterhood is not all about nail polish and parties. There's something sinister lurking in the Sigma Alpha Xi house, and Maggie must figure out what it is before it's too late.
I actually really enjoyed this book. Even though it's part of a series, it isn't necessary to read all the other books. At some parts, I was confused about previous events, but it didn't stop the suspense. Maggie is a great character: she's funny and serious at the same time, and her commentary on sororities and fraternities is very satirical. I liked reading a book about a quirky heroine who fights evil in her spare time. The mystery about the Sigma Alpha Xis is suspenseful and spooky, and in a good way, too. This very refreshing book makes me want to go back and read the others in the series. Kudos to Rosemary Clement-Moore!
