    DescriptionLaureth Peak's father is a writer. For years he's been trying, and failing, to write a novel about coincidence. His wife thinks he's obsessed, Laureth thinks he's on the verge of a breakdown. He's supposed to be doing research in Austria, so when his notebook shows up in New York, Laureth knows something is wrong. On impulse she steals her mother's credit card and heads for the States, taking her strange little brother Benjamin with her. Reunited with the notebook, they begin to follow clues inside, trying to find their wayward father. Ahead lie challenges and threats, all of which are that much tougher for Laureth than they would be for any other 16-year old. Because Laureth Peak is blind. Features an author's note read by Marcus Sedgwick and a bonus conversation between the author and reader. Read by Anna Cannings, from braille. Anna Cannings was born blind with Bilateral Microphthalmia. She grew up in Sussex, where she attended local mainstream schools. At 18, Anna set up her own audio production company, before embracing acting, taking guest lead roles in prime time TV dramas William and Mary and Bodies. Anna was chosen by artist Marc Quinn to be the subject of his marble sculpture on display at the famous White Cube gallery and by artist Rona Lee for her National Oceanography installation. She enjoys keep fit and walking with her guide dog Reno. Visit www.annacannings.com for more about Anna and her work.
