Maddie and Wynn

  Life as she likes it is busted when Maddie’s parents accept an anthropology assignment in Peru. Leaving her friends, school, 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 Mémè come to live with them.


What do you do when everything around keeps changing? 
How do you hold onto who you are or become who you aspire to be?

Note from the Author

As a way to honor memories of my youth lost due to injuries incurred in an auto accident, I chose to write the Adventures of Maddie Leon using my given name, Terresa Davis.

Creating the series and its complementary resources offers opportunity to immerse myself in the tween and teen years of radical change and growth, and share with readers the reward of knowing self, finding your way, and staying true to self.

I hope Maddie Leon and her friends will inspire you to pay attention to the path your on and encourage you too explore the many places, people, and possibilities that surround you.”  – Terresa Augustine (nee Davis)
