A TOP FIVE FICTION CHART BESTSELLER

The first book in a laugh-out-loud, high-voltage, action-packed
adventure series for 8+ readers from hugely popular TV
personality, ALESHA DIXON, writtenin
collaboration with KATY BIRCHALL.
10-year-old Aurora Beam lives at home with her utterly unremarkable
family... until the day she sees her little sister being
picked on in the playground and suddenly beams oflight
shoot out of her fingers! It's time for
her parents to drop a life-changing bombshell. Mum is a secret
superhero, fighting crime across the globe while Dad looks after
the kids at home.
As Aurora's own powers come into play, will she be able
to balance her new super skills training with school? Will she beable
to keep it all a secret from her friends? And when her mum's
evil twin pops up, will Aurora think that being a super VILLAIN might be morefun...?
Alesha Dixon says:
My inspiration to create a superhero called Lightning Girlbegan
with wanting my young daughter to feel empowered.
It's been a dream to create a strong role model thatany
child can look up to - I want my readers to see themselves
in Aurora, who is dealing with trouble at home and trouble at
school alongside her new powers.
I also have a love of precious stones and their healing properties;
I have always been fascinated with their spectacular colours
and the positive energy that they bring.
As human beings we are always searching for something greater
within ourselves and a deeper meaning to life and it's
my belief that we all have a light within us that can affect change
and bring good to the world... we just have to harness it!
:) Enter Aurora Beam!
