Summary
Siena's obsession began a year and a half ago, around the time her two-year-old brother Lucca stopped talking. Now Mum and Dad are moving the family from Brooklyn to Maine hoping that it will mean a whole new start for Lucca and Siena. She soon realizes that their wonderful old house on the beach holds secrets. When Siena writes in her diary with an old pen she found in her closet, the pen writes its own story, of Sarah and Joshua, a brother and sister who lived in the same house during World War II. As the two stories unfold, amazing parallels begin to appear, and Siena senses that Sarah and Joshua's story might contain the key to unlocking Lucca's voice

  • Hardback -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?
