Inspired by a true story.
Maddie is a normal twelve,year,old girl. Well, except for the fake mustaches
she carries in her pocket. She likes to make people laugh, and slapping on
a mustache always gets a smile. Maddie hopes that the class queen, Cassie,
will find her mustaches as funny as she does and want to play with her at
recess. Shes been self,conscious lately because her right arm only feels
normal when its curled against her chest, and shes constantly tripping
over her feet. But thats probably just part of growing up, right?
When Maddies arm continues to bother her, her parents take her to
a doctor who gives them a shocking diagnosis: a brain tumor. Shes
understandably afraid as he describes the surgery she will need, but knows
she must find a way to be brave and must face her fearsall of themat the
hospital, at home, and at school.
It will take all of Maddies vibrant imagination, a lot of kindnessboth
given and receivedand of course, the perfect mustache to overcome the
tough stuff ahead of her.
