Mustaches for Maddie is a book based on a true story about a twelve year old girl who loves mustaches. When her arm starts acting weird, her mom finally takes her to the doctor where they discover she has a brain tumor which is pushing against a part of her brain that functions the left side of her body, which is why her left arm is acting weird. Her surgery is in two weeks, and the school play she is in, Romeo and Juliet, is in four weeks. Her doctors say she will be up again in a week after surgery, but they cannot guarantee that. Not only does she have to deal with her tumor, she has a problem with the school queen, Cassie. Cassie is a bully, but is surrounded by friends because she is known as queen, and a beautiful one. There also is a new girl in town, and is left out by Cassie. Mustaches for Maddie is a heartwarming story, and it is balanced with humor and heart. This is one of the best books I have ever read, and I rate it 5/5 and recommend it to people who are also going through what Maddie had gone through, people who love mustaches, and people who love humor, but also heart.
