Listening for Lucca

Listening for Lucca - Suzanne LaFleur Wow! This was a great book and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I’d never read anything similar and so I was really intrigued. I had read ‘Love Aubrey’* by the same author and it was really good. I picked up the book from my local library and began to read.

Her obsession with lost things was a great addition to the story and linked in well with Lucca’s lost voice. I always imagined her little brother speaking and he did(at the end). I was more interested in Sarah’s story than Siena’s. My favourite part was when Jenny locked Sarah’s lips with a key so that she couldn't speak. But that wasn't what I liked about it. It was how Siena found the key afterwards ans she could see it unlike Sarah. The story of Sarah was great. Usually, I hate books about the past but this was different. The story didn't drag on but didn't move on too quickly. I liked how it kept switching between Sarah and Siena. It was great that Siena had a friend Sam, someone who didn't think she was weird. Usually in books, the other person just gets freaked out and avoids them. It was different in this case and I really liked that.

Above all, the lady next door was my favourite character. Even though, she played a small part in the story I just felt that it was her who made the book complete. I give this book 5 stars! All in all, the book was great and I would love to read some other books by LaFleur like Eight Keys and I might!
