Big congrats to Sue Lawson for her shortlisting in the Children’s Peace Literature Awards for Finding Darcy.
Darcy Abbott is forced to live with her grandmother and great-grandmother – who she calls Misery and Batty – for three months while her mother retrains in the city. Darcy is horrified by the prospect of living with these two unhappy women and worse still, no TV after 9.30pm and no internet access!
While researching a project at school she discovers a mystery surrounding the disappearance of her great-grandfather, Darcy Charles Fletcher, during World War II – and a secret that has wreaked havoc in her family for generations.
Finding Darcy is available now.
