Sangu Mandanna was four years old when she was chased by an elephant and wrote her first story about it and decided that this was what she wanted to do with her life. Seventeen years later, she read Frankenstein. It sent her into a writing frenzy that became The Lost Girl, a novel about death and love and the tie that binds the two together.The Lost Girl is out now from HarperCollins Children’s Books (North America), Random House Children’s Books (UK and Commonwealth) and in translation. Sangu lives in Norwich with her husband and two sons. Find Sangu online at www.sangumandanna.com or on Twitter (@SanguMandanna).

But fifteen years of studying never prepared her for this. (more)
“The most honest portrait of grief and loss that I’ve read in a long time. Filled with heartache, love and things that would stir Mary Shelley’s ghost, this is a story not to be missed.” – Lauren DeStefano, New York Times bestselling author of the Chemical Garden trilogy
