Maddie and Wynn

The Adventures of Maddie Leon
– A Continental Shift –

Maddie has a passion for fashion, but her aspirations and best summer ever are shattered when her parents accept a cultural anthropology assignment in Peru. Leaving her friends, school, and Vancouver to live in Lima totally sucks!

Then she meets Jojo Kofi Afram, another culturally transported kid, rescues Wynn from a dog’s life on the streets, and discovers new possibilities for reFashioned fashion.

Life should be great—but it’s not!

Her mom expects her to be more ‘regular’, she misses Jenna and her grandpa to the stars and back, and now Tata M is sick with the forgetting disease, so she and Victor are moving in with them.

Living in a medley of four cultures, experiencing new relationships including troubles at school, and changing family dynamics is a lot for a teen to cope with.

Follow Maddie online or in-print as she figures out how to hang on and let go
in times and places of difference, change, and uncertainty.
