Maddie and Wynn

The adventures of maddie leon

A Continental Shift

Life as she likes it is disrupted when Maddie’s parents accept an anthropology assignment in Peru. Leaving her friends, school, and Vancouver totally sucks! Then she meets Jojo Kofi Afram, a culturally transported kid like herself, rescues Wynn from a dog’s life on the streets, and becomes inspired to use her fashion passion to aide others. Life should be great … but it’s not! All this change, uncertainty, and cultural confusion risks robbing her of self. To make matters worse, Victor and his grandmother’s arrival as permanent houseguests changes her new norm – now what?
