Eight-year-old Mackenzie Goode has a sense of humor that always gets her into trouble. But in third grade, she makes the ultimate promise to herself: no more mistakes. Mistakes are for babies and the last huge mistake she made, back in second grade, caused her a forever grounding and to see a look in her parents' eyes she never wants to see again: disappointment. When the principal of the school visits Mac's class as a mystery reader, Mackenzie's will is tested. Instead of listening to the principal read, Mac sings her best friend, Cheese, a song she makes up about their friendship. Right in the middle of class!
Mac winds up in the worst sort of trouble! The see-you-after-school kind of trouble. The grounded-for-life kind of trouble. The kind of trouble that is sure to create that look in her parents' eyes she was trying so hard to avoid. Fixing this sort of mistake won't be easy, but with the help of Cheese (and her parents) Mac tries.
Eight-year-old Mackenzie Goode is at it again. Even when she tries to make it up to her parents for making mistakes, she can't seem to avoid the inevitable: making mistakes. When Mac decides to surprise her parents with breakfast in bed, a full on food festival complete with pancakes, toast, and a song, the worst kind of trouble ensues. Despite the efforts of her best friend, Cheese, the kitchen becomes an A-1, top-notch, disaster area and it turns out, instead of doing the surprising, Mac gets the surprise of her life.
But Mac isn't the only one who has to apologize for her mishaps. It turns out fixing mistakes is grown-up work too.
