Fiction. In THE LOST GIRL, James Morrison finds a compelling lens through the eyes of a young person trying to understand the world and her place in it. In stylized prose both elegant and spare, saturated with irony but fraught with tenderness, Morrison raises questions about modern life that become more pressing by the day. "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"--Porter Shreve.

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."

--Jonathan Strong
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."

--Porter Shreve
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."

--Aurelie Sheehan
author of History Lesson for Girls
