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.
