Love from Lexie (The Lost and Found)




Romance, friendship and saving the world. A gorgeous new series from the much-loved Cathy Cassidy.

Life has been pretty chaotic ever since Lexie's mum vanished - new homes, new places, new people, always changing. But Lexie never gives up hope that her mum will come back one day and continues writing her letters that return unanswered. While she's waiting for her mum to rescue her, Lexie decides to do a bit of saving herself - everything from salvaging an old railway carriage to campaigning for the local library and the Syrian refugee crisis.

For a long time Lexie hasn't know what direction her life is headed in but she's about to realise that sometimes you have to get lost to find yourself again . . .

The first in a gorgeous new series from the bestselling author of the Chocolate Box Girls and the perfect next step for fans of Jacqueline Wilson.

About the author

Cathy Cassidy

I was born in 1962 in Coventry (scarily ancient, I know). I wrote my first picture book for my little brother when I was eight or nine. I loved making comics, too - pages and pages of picture stories, features and competitions. I'd sell my homemade comic to a friend for 5p, then claim it back and sell it again to someone else . . . they didn't have photocopiers back then!

I went to Art College in Liverpool, then got a job as fiction editor on the fab and legendary Jackie magazine. Later, I married my boyfriend Liam, went back to college and trained to be an art teacher. I taught in a Coventry secondary school for a few years, which I loved, then moved to Scotland with Liam to start a family. My kids are 11 and 12 years old now, and the four of us live in a cottage in the Galloway hills with sheep and cows for neighbours. As well as writing books, I am the agony aunt on Shout magazine and a couple of days a week I teach art in a bunch of local primary schools, which is great fun and keeps me sane. (Well, maybe!)

I've been veggie for 28 years, and was vegan for 8 of them - a chocolate-eating vegan, like Storm! I love old clothes, old toys, cars, books. We have three cats, a rabbit and a mad, hairy lurcher called Kelpie (the model for Leggit in my book Dizzy). I love my family, I love living in the middle of nowhere and I love my work. Of all my jobs, writing has to be the best - it's the perfect excuse to daydream, after all!
