Listening for Lucca is perfect for 9+ girls who love Jacqueline Wilson.
Summer on the beach, a sprinkling of magic and a ghostly mystery of the past intertwine in an irresistible and compelling story from the author of the acclaimed Love, Aubrey.
'We're moving to your house - the one from your dream'.
Siena sees what isn't there; collects what's left behind.
'Lucca led me to his room, and then just stood in the middle, waiting for me to notice something'.
Her brother Lucca is three and hasn't spoken for over a year.
The doctors think he needs a fresh start, that's why her family left Brooklyn. But their new home feels hauntingly familiar - and when Siena finds an old pen, the story she writes is not her own . . .
Can Siena's discovery of past secrets help break her brother's silence in the present?
