Maggie is a very conscientious young girl on the brink of teenage-hood. With a conscience the size of the United States of America, Maggie wants to save all the bad things from happening. Upon learning that her neighbor uses rabbit’s for meat, Maggie’s greatest desire is to save the rabbits. Throughout her adventure, Maggie brushes up with murderers, experiences middle school and friend drama, and copes with possibilities of divorce between her parents. All ends well and Maggie learns great lessons along the way.
