This July we’re publishing an incredible new novel for 9+ year olds from Fleur Hitchcock, author of the highly-acclaimed Dear Scarlett – Saving Sophia, an action-packed novel about friendship and searching for the truth. And today, you can read the first three chapters!
All Lottie wants to do is have adventures, but no such luck. Until she meets Sophia, a girl with an intriguingly mysterious history. When the two run away from a staged kayak accident to find Sophia’s mum, Lottie learns a lot about having adventures (they’re mostly brilliant but not the bits where you nearly die).
Here’s a sneak preview inside:
