Description

“Lightning Chase Me Home has all my favourite things: storms, islands, myths, and family. Amber Lee Dodd writes with tenderness and thunder, and her storytelling is a bolt of brilliance.” Kiran Millwood Hargrave

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. “Adventure, mystery and a zap of magic – this is a warm-hearted, engaging story with a heroine you’ll love” Robin Stevens
