When Maddie wakes up in the hospital, she knows she has to get out--fast! Soon her brother Alexander will be in her room, touching her stuff; soon her rival Patrick will take over her gang at school.
But when she meets Black Eagle, a tough, funny kid who's in for cancer treatment, Maddie doesn't want to leave. Despite all her efforts, she's finally sent home. When she gets there, however, her grandmother has a great idea for winning back the gang, and Black Eagle at the same time.
Maddie in Hospital is the touching story of a girl's first love, and of the sacrifices she makes for it.
"This sixth book in the Maddie series both entertains and educates. Leblanc infuses her story and characters with wit and energy... Maddie is a particularly delightful combination of determination and sensitivity. Amusing illustrations add to the book's appeal... recommended."
"LeBlanc has made every word count in this tightly written novel."
"In Maddie in Hospital, author Louise Leblanc presents illness in a matter-of fact manner and with a gentle often humourous touch. She also provides some lessons on the consequences of dishonesty and hits on every child's concern about fitting in and feeling special."
