A sister and brother, forced to write in the summer, and share ONE journal?
This is exactly what happens to 10-year-old twins Maggie and Max Pruitt.
When Mom comes up with a plan for them to keep a summer journal, Maggie and Max can’t believe it. Worse yet, they have to share!
Through their writing, Maggie and Max find out they have very different (and hilarious) views about growing up, family and life a conclusion they only discovered because, as Max and Maggie say, Mom Made Us Write This.
About The Author
Max & Maggie creator ALI MAIER knows a great story. As an avid volunteer, hands-on mom and former teacher, Ali has spent years working with children, experiencing their life stories and crafting her own.
Ali grew up in Pennsylvania with her parents and an older sister. Separated by only 17 months, Ali and her sister experienced many of the same events, teachers and friends, as well as all of the fun and challenges that come with sibling relationships.
Today, Ali and her husband have two children who are close in age and share the same kind of close relationship (and the same kind of challenges!).
The most important part of Ali’s life is her family. She is blessed with a loving husband, children, parents and extended family that are a constant source of love and laughter.
Mom Made Us Write This shows a unique and funny understanding of the loving (and not-so-loving) relationship between close siblings and their family.
