Even a woman with good intentions can make some bad decisions in Kathy Cooperman's latest novel, The Very Principled Maggie Mayfield.
The summary says: "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." The Very Principled Maggie Mayfield is out in October 2018.
