The magazine loving Maddy is back for another adventure. When she falls for the hottest Goth guy in town, Maddy takes a little trip to the darkside and transforms herself into a full-on Goth chick. However underneath the eyeliner, black hair dye and long leather black trench coat, all is not well as she starts to dabble into black magic. Exciting, dark and often humorous this story will be enjoyed by ages 9 and up.

Synopsis

Maddy: Gothic Goddess by Carrie Bright

Maddy Blue lives her whole life through magazines. She wishes she could trade her boring lifestyle for an exciting, action packed adventure - just like she reads about in her favourite mags! She blurs the edges of her real life and the fantasy magazine world to help her deal with her everyday existence, and believes all that the horoscopes/5-min quizzes/style tips/problem pages tell her. Maddy is constantly striving to discover who she can be, and live up to her own dreams. Funny, action-packed, yet touching, this book takes you on the roller coaster of worries and dreams, that is Maddy Blue's life. Through the influence of magazines, Maddy and Starr become new-age fans, and plunge themselves into a world of astrology, numerology, dreams and spells. Scott despairs at their new interest, which he thinks is a waste of time. Trouble surfaces when Maddy thinks she's put a boy under a spell to make her madly in love with her! But will it all end in true love?

About the Author

Carrie Bright

Ceri Worman was Carrie Bright’s original name - her name change was partly because no one could pronounce it. Carrie is obvious to pronounce on sight and similar to her real name, whilst Bright is a family name.
Ceri was born in Wales but moved to England at the age of three. Her family originally moved to Oxford but when Ceri was seven they settled in South Yorkshire. After gaining a History degree from Hull University, Ceri worked as a librarian for various London libraries, where her "broad northern accent" was ironically mocked! After a stint as an English teacher in south London, Ceri moved, with her young son to South America.
When her son became especially fluent in Spanish swearwords, Ceri decided it was time to return to England. They settled back in South Yorkshire and Ceri began to write her first children's book, The Adventures of Jamie B, Superspy, based, in part, on her son, Marcus, now an adventurous teenager.
