Overview

Maddie has had enough. Enough of her parents telling her what to do. Enough of her grouchy brother Alexander and her goofy brother Julian. Enough of her adorable sister Angelbaby Sugarkins, even. So Maddie decides to run away from home. She works out an elaborate plan: she packs a bag for her journey, she sabotages her schoolbus. But soon, walking down a strange street with nothing to eat, she panics. She runs to a busy shopping mall, but doesn't see anyone she knows. She gets terribly lost in a deep, dark forest. Just when she thinks all hope is lost, however, Maddie discovers a surprise that changes everything. That's Enough, Maddie! is a story about the difficulties of everyday family life, and the dangers of acting impulsively.
