Lost for Words

By Aoife Walsh

A touching family tale about grief and growing up. Can Dallas save her local library from closure?

Dallas's life was turned upside down the day her mum was killed in a traffic accident. Now she lives with her brothers, step-sister and her mum's partner Gemma in a too-small house filled with bickering and grief. As the end of primary school approaches, Dallas learns that the local library has run out of funding and will soon be closing. Dallas decides she cannot let another thing she loves be lost. Together with her friends Aiza and Ruby, and her freewheeling American aunt Jessi, she starts a campaign to save the library for everyone. A beautifully told tale about family, grief and growing up.

  • A treasure trove of a book' Jane Elson
  • A beautifully written, affecting family and friendship drama about grief and growing up
  • Follows a girl campaigning to keep her local library open in the face of funding cuts - sure to strike a chord with librarians, reviewers and readers
