Listening for Lucca by Suzanne LaFleur 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 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 the secrets of the past help Siena break her brother's silence?
