When Maddy finds what she thinks is a dog abandoned in the creek behind her house, her summer vacation is thrown into chaos. There is no time for hanging out with friends, as she is forced to play scientist and then detective to discover what is causing a lethal sludge that is destroying more than just the local creek.
With the help of her new "pet," Ki, Maddy discovers the secret of the B.O.A.T. and the land of Empyreonn. Forbidden to tell anyone what she has found, she discovers inner strength and courage as she realizes that she alone can help the strange creature she has grown to love. She persuades Alex, the smart science boy from school, to help her, while avoiding Carrot, the spoiled bully who has a crush on her. Through all of her adventures, Maddy keeps a clear head.
Emotional, adventurous, dramatic, and funny, Maddy Wylde is the story of a girl's quest for a world unspoiled by greed and environmental harm. By the end of the summer she proves that life's challenges can be conquered through love, determination, intelligence, and pride.
