How could a 14-year-old get a good summer job in West Michigan besides babyistting and other odd jobs?

You can apply at various jobs. Some places hire 14 year olds like some grocery stores or fast food places. But you have to have good grades or your Work Permit (what you need to have a job if you are younger than 18. You your parents you employer and the superindendent at you school need to fill it out) can be revoked.
