  • -6
Maddie was a kind and compassionate American girl. She joined other girls in teasing Wanda. But she really didn’t like teasing others. She wanted to stop Peggy from teasing Wanda. But she could not gather courage as she was afraid of Peggy. She feared Peggy could make her the next victim. She considered herself to be guiltier for remaining silent. When Wanda left the school, she felt very restless and could not sleep at night. She went to Wanda’s house to say sorry and decided not to remain silent if anybody was being teased for their poor dress or funny name. She would speak up. She was even ready to sacrifice her friendship with Peggy.

Maddie is a kind and empathetic girl, as she could make sense of what Wanda was feeling. She did not belong from a financially well-off family, as she wore Peggy's old clothes to school. Her best friend was Peggy, but she was still scared that she could be the next subject of mockery if she raised her voice against the dresses game. Moreover, she could relate well to Wanda's condition, as she had an almost identical situation. Maddie, as a person is more sensitive to people's feelings compared to Peggy, quite possibly because she wasn't as popular in school as Peggy was.
