Lightning Chase Me Home by Amber Lee Dodd


In Amber Lee Dodd’s new book, a girl called Amelia - with the spirit of an explorer - makes a powerful wish and begins a mythical quest. In Lighting Chase Me Home, Amelia tells us the story of her surprising, touching and magical adventure.

This is the kind of book I loved to read when I was eleven. It reminded me of an Enid Blyton adventure. It’s set on a remote Scottish Island, which is a character in the story itself. The greatest female adventurers  to have ever lived provide courage and inspiration to our hero Amelia who is struggling with the separation of her parents and the repercussions of making a wish on her eleventh birthday.

Amber Lee Dodd has conjured up an emotional and thrilling tale, which is a delight to read, fast paced and hard to put down. Good for the adventurous girls and boys in your family.
