Sweet Maddie Stone

 
„What can I say, I am a charmer!“, sagt Maddie Stone zynisch, nachdem sie – wieder einmal – nur um ein Haar nicht von der Schule geworfen wurde. Die Fünfzehnjährige hat massive „anger issues“: Ihr Vater sitzt im Knast und Maddie kann ihren Frust nur auf dem Pausenhof ausleben. Dort ist sie Chefin, vercheckt Süßigkeiten wie Drogen und verprügelt Schüler, die sich ihr in den Weg stellen – bis ihr ein anderer ihren Platz streitig macht. (Dominik Tschütscher)

Fifteen-year-old Maddie Stone rules her schoolyard under the protection of her family name. But after discovering her notorious father has been arrested, she has to make his bail money or lose the yard. The more Maddie fights, the more her world spirals out of control – and the closer she gets to becoming the man she’s trying to save.
