What Made Maddy Run: The Secret Struggles and Tragic Death of an All-American Teen Cover Imagehttp://www.elmstreetbooks.com/book/9780316356541

A friend recommended this book to me.  She did warn me that it was intense.  It is very well written.  Kate Fagan tries to understand what was happening to Maddy through texts, social media posts and talking with her friends and family.  Nobody will ever know what was happening inside Maddy’s mind, and that is heartbreaking.  This is an important read for parents and teenagers, and for teachers and coaches.

In this fast paced, pressured world for our children, please know that NOTHING is more important that your life.  I don’t imagine that there is any parent, coach, teacher, professor, brother, sister, or friend that would disagree.  Please know that there is always someone to talk to, and if that person cannot help, they will help you to find someone who can.

I’d like to say Happy Reading, but it isn’t right.  I welcome comments.
