Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

"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."
