I've only read the preview thing so far but it seems really good. A book about a girl that carries moustaches? So unique! I can't wait to get it. It feautures not only sadness but happiness and even sometimes anger. But not only that it showcases the cruelty of cancer and what people with cancer have to go through. Mustaches for Maddie is both humorous and heartwarming. There were so many things that I love about this novel so far. It's like an emotional roller coaster! I was braced for this book to be sad (though I know in real life there is a happy ending), or perhaps even too silly to try and undercut the drama. Instead it was a spot-on story about being twelve: figuring out friends and crushes, running afoul of mean girls, dealing with annoying younger siblings, having homework, as well as handling bad news. Maddie is a fun-loving girl, with a rich imagination, but she's not always as courageous or cool as she wants to be. In other words: she's real. And the things she deals with are real, too. Not just the brain tumor, but everything else, and the book is so well done. The family dynamic is great, the dynamic between the kids in Maddie's class is great.
