Listening for Lucca by Suzanne LaFleur

4 stars

Reviewed by Clara

Siena is not an ordinary kid. She collects lost objects, sees visions of the past, and her little brother Lucca does not talk at all. But when she moves to Maine everything gets a lot stranger. First she moves into the house that she had dreamt of before they even moved. Then she finds a pen that has the power of uncovering the past and might just help Lucca talk again. Along the way Siena stumbles into many more surprises that might answer some of her many questions.

This story takes place in present Maine although it gives you glimpses of the past. I suggest this book for anyone who likes mysteries, historical fiction, and adventure or anyone who is looking for a good, short read. This book will keep you reading because of its mystical and cunning plot. It intertwines two marvelous stories in the past and present that are oddly alike. I would rate this book four out of five stars.
