Lightning Chase Me Home | Amber Lee Dodd
Amelia Hester McLeod is named after two of her mum's favourite explorers. Two amazing, fearless, awesome women: Amelia Earhart and Lady Hester Stanhope.
But Amelia herself doesn't always feel very brave or very bright. She lives on a windblown island in a creaky old house right beneath the North Star. Her dad is sad and silent since her mum left them, and her absent-minded grandpa suddenly seems convinced something strange is about to happen to her.
When Amelia makes a birthday wish to be reunited with her missing mum, a wild magic is stirred from the sea... A novel of courage and strength, packed full of adventure and heroics but also with warmth and heart.
