Lori and Max
Max is prepared for another move. She predicts when she and her mother will be moved on following another of her father’s bad deals. New schools, new people do not faze her. As long as she has her book and her lucky snake charm, Max will be all right. Her father promises the moon, including birthday parties, but Max has learned the truth.
She keeps the truth hidden, but when she joins Class 6B and is paired up with would-be detective, Lori, Max reveals her home life. Nan suspects all is not rosy for Max- ‘I’m not standing in judgement and I certainly don’t blame Max, but a fact’s a fact. She’s not being looked after properly, alone with eyes can see that.‘
Max goes missing at the same time that the class charity donation box is emptied of its funds. It’s too convenient; the police are convinced Max is the suspect. However, Lori knows differently. She’s become friends with the real Max. More than that, Lori’s determination to become a detective makes her more aware of people, their behaviour, movements and settings. It was Lori who alerted Miss Casey to the empty charity collection in the first place!
Can ‘Lori and Max‘ ensure the truth about Max’s disappearance is revealed, and Max is discovered safe and sound? It’s a big responsibility for two girls with walkie-talkies, a deer stalker and a sweet tooth.
‘Lori and Max‘ is a gripping, original detective story. Bookwagon is delighted to invite our readers to enjoy this début title.
