Love, Lucie


About The Book

Lucie is the middle child in a family that has been devastated by the death of her mother. Struggling to cope without Mum to guide them, Lucie, her brother Hugo, big sister Chloe and Dad are dealing with the emotional fallout of losing someone so close, as well as the practical realities of death - from clearing out a wardrobe to learning to cook. And, as if things weren't tough enough, Lucie is also trying to navigate the challenges of turning eleven: her first kiss is baffling, and her big sister's a total nightmare. How will she cope without Mum there to guide her?

A heartbreaking story of love and loss, told through Lucie's own letters that are packed with emotion, humour and, ultimately, hope.
