Description

Maddie is bored. She's bored at home, bored with chores and her screaming baby sister. She bored at school, bored with her teacher and her too-perfect friend Clementine. So when she's offered a chance to hang out with a new crowd, she jumps at it.

Her new friends are older, tougher and, it seems, smarter: they have a plan to raise enough money to go see their favourite band's concert. The plan soon goes bad, however, and Maddie finds herself in danger of being called a thief. Until, that is, "too-perfect" Clementine arrives to save the day.

Maddie Needs Her Own Life is the story of a girl whose impulsiveness threatens to lead her into real trouble, and of the friend who draws her back.
