From Kathy Cooperman, the bestselling author of Crimes Against a Book Club, comes a comedy about a woman with good intentions who makes some very bad decisions.
Maggie Mayfield, an elementary school principal in the upscale suburbs of San Diego, likes to do the right thing--for her students and, after her marriage takes a hit, for herself as well. What's wrong with that?
To keep her cash-strapped school afloat, Maggie says yes to a sweet deal from Silicon Valley's hottest for-profit education company. They'll provide enough funding so that Maggie can keep her science, art, and PE teachers in exchange for some dopey beta-test program backed by handsome CEO Danny Z. No layoffs Happy kids
Professionally, everything's flourishing. Personally, the right things are tingling--Maggie can't resist Danny Z's magnetism. But as the school year continues, Maggie senses that she might have been duped. As things take a turn for the worse, Maggie and her BFF assistant, Diane, must keep things good--by going a little bad.
Smart, funny, and unpredictable, The Very Principled Maggie Mayfield is a comedy of friendship, class warfare, good intentions, and occasionally necessary unprincipled behavior.
