I Heart American Girl Entry

Meet Maggie Marx. She's eleven years old as sweet as can be. She lives in a small town called Bellingham in Arizona. She's always wanted to do something to make a difference but never really got around to carrying out her plans to save the rain forest or raise money for earthquake victims. Then, her best friend and sister Sarah is diagnosed with leukemia and has to go to Phoenix, which is almost two hours away, once a month for days at a time for treatment. Maggie decides it's time to put one of her helping plans to action. With her faithful golden doodle, Maxie by her side, Maggie comes up with the idea to host a square dance in her family's old barn, charging five dollars for a night of dancing and music, but when only her family and a few very close friends show up, will Sarah be able to teach Maggie an important lesson about how sometimes it's not about how big your project is, but that you want to help
at all?
