Description

Maddie's not happy with the start of the new school year--she's got a new teacher with an eagle-eye, and her rival Patrick wants to take over her gang. Big, tough Patrick challenges Maddie to a fight. Maddie knows she can't win that way, so she talks to her grandmother, who suggests she challenge Patrick--to an election.
When their try at democracy falls apart, Patrick suggests a contest with a very risky goal. Soon Maddie finds herself in very deep trouble, and her grandmother is the only one who can get her out of it.
Maddie in Trouble is the story of a girl who learns to do the right thing, the hard way.

Editorial Reviews

"This is the seventh instalment in the Maddie series by award-winning author, Louise Leblanc. Every Maddie story has a moral lining, and Leblanc is very good at getting her message across while making readers laugh. Comical black-and-white line drawings complement the text perfectly. Highly recommended."
