Mustaches for Maddie by Chad Morris
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
You will need a box of tissues for this book.
This is an inspiring story. Based on a true experience about a real little girl named Maddie, who not only overcame a brain tumor, but touched the lives around her. (You can still see evidence on twitter is you search the hashtag #mustachesformaddie.)
Maddie is an imaginative girl, and I kept thinking of the Bridge to Terabithia as I read. Much of the narrative is Maddie’s imagination, and as she interacts with classmates, you see not only her changing but the kids around her.
I also liked the undercurrent of praying and having faith.
Thank you Shadow Mountain for the ARC copy.
