Mustaches for Maddie

Mustaches for MaddieMustaches 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.
