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.

"In Maddie in Hospital, author Louise Leblanc presents illness in a matter-of fact manner and with a gentle often humourous touch. She also provides some lessons on the consequences of dishonesty and hits on every child's concern about fitting in and feeling special."

- Hamilton Spectator

"LeBlanc has made every word count in this tightly written novel."

- Joy Showell Resource Links

"This sixth book in the Maddie series both entertains and educates. Leblanc infuses her story and characters with wit and energy... Maddie is a particularly delightful combination of determination and sensitivity. Amusing illustrations add to the book's appeal... recommended."

- Leigh Dodds Canadian Book Review Annual
