Maddie and Wynn

  Life as she likes it is busted when Maddie’s parents accept an anthropology assignment in Peru. Leaving her friends, school, home, and Vancouver – totally sucks. 

  Then she meets Jojo Kofi Afram, rescues Wynn from a dog’s life on the streets, and becomes inspired to use her talents to help others.

  Life should be great-but it isn’t! Its full of cultural confusion, change, and uncertainty that risks becoming a full-blown disaster when Victor and his grandmother Mémé come to live with them.

Note from the Author

“I choose to write this story under my maiden name Terresa Davis, as a way to honor youth memories lost as a result of injuries incurred in an auto accident in 1996. Creating The Adventures of Maddie Leon with its complementary resources has given me the opportunity to participate in those years of radical change, growth, and opportunity. I hope the Adventures of Maddie Leon along with her friends will inspire you to pay attention to the path your own and too explore the many places, people, and possibilities that surround you.”  – Terresa Augustine (nee Davis)
