Overview

Things are getting crazy at Maddie's house: her mother has cut her finger, her brother is taking her stuff, her baby sister is starting to wail, her dad is just trying to keep out of it. At school things aren't much better: bully Patrick is trying to take over her gang, and her genius brother Julian has joined her drama class. When Maddie's mother goes away for a few days' rest, she knows she'll have to do something extreme to get everything back to normal. So she comes up with a radical plan: she'll be as good as she possibly can until her mother comes back. It's almost more than Maddie can bear, but she manages with a little help from her wise grandmother. Maddie Tries To Be Good is a story about the pressures of everyday life, and how support from others can help us cope.
