The Maddie Chronicles is a boxed set of young adult modern adventures penned by author Hannah R. Goodman, and contains the stories: My Sister’s Wedding, My Summer Vacation, and Fear of Falling. In preparation for the fourth book in the series, readers can engage in the initially not-so-exciting life of self-help addict Maddie Hickman. Maddie is an insecure girl, typically struggling her way through high school and trying to use other people’s guidance to get through it and reach adulthood somewhat sane. The other people in her life, however, and the misguided decisions she makes will teach her many lessons about herself, and what it really means to be an adult, along the way.
Maddie Hickman is very much the Bridget Jones of her generation, and I enjoyed this charming collection of realistic, yet teen-exaggerated dramas. The individual volumes are quite short, digestible stories suitable for young YA readers and beyond, and the experience of the three-book set makes for a strong emotional rollercoaster with Maddie, allowing us to really get to know her, her family and her school friends. The dialogue is clear but fresh, free of clichés and tropes, and the plot has some satisfying turns and some really unpredictable ones which cause sudden drama that’s very entertaining. Overall, I’d say The Maddie Chronicles is an excellent collection to dive into for a hefty dose of coming of age drama, and I’d be really excited to see what author Hannah R. Goodman brings to the future of the series.
