About this title:
From the Publisher:
Praise for The Lost Girl
"In The Lost Girl, motherless Cecelia gets full credit for turning from an unnoticed shy eighth-grade girl into a compassionate young person. James Morrison observes each subtle tilt toward maturity so deftly that by the last chapter we're convinced and delighted to find how far she's traveled. There's lots of fun along the way--nineties teen attitude, a self-help TV talk show, a first kiss, an overweight chum of a dad--but for all the sparkle, this is finally a novel of genuine growth and change in a richly drawn character we come to love."
author of Elsewhere, Secret Words and A Circle Around Her
"There's intelligence, wit, suppleness and a fine cadence to the sentences, and the book is full of well-observed detail. . . . Novels often struggle to balance emotional development and cultural commentary--one tends to overwhelm the other--but Morrison blends these elements remarkably well."
author of Drives Like a Dream and The Obituary Writer
"A magician's touch . . . Morrison is one of the most graceful purveyors of language that I have read in a very, very long time."
author of History Lesson for Girls
