Everyone has secrets, but no one can hide them from Cici!

As a future writer, Cici knows what questions to ask and where to find the clues she needs to unlock peoples’ hearts. Yet even though Cici is great at helping others, for a long time now she has kept a dark and painful secret hidden inside herself.

Cici’s friends and mom all want to help her heal, but she keeps pushing them away. Can a treasure hunt, a mysterious mansion, and an epic beachside fight help her to open up at last?

Praise for Cici's Journal: Lost and Found

"Movingly shows how human life contains more mysteries than any hidden room or secret code."—Kirkus

The format, a mix of journal and scrapbook, combined with Neyret’s ethereal and luminous artwork, will draw in even the most reluctant readers."—School Library Journal


Joris Chamblain; illustrated by Aurélie Neyret

Joris Chamblain stumbled into graphic novels when he was very little and decided at an early age that comics would be his career. His first comic book series, Cici's Journal (Les Carnets de Cerise in French) won the Youth Prize at the Angouleme International Comics festival in 2014 and no less than twenty awards. Nowadays he devotes all his time to writing comics and books for kids, and even trying his hand at a novel. He and his many artistic collaborators have quite a few projects in the works.

Aurélie Neyret
is an illustrator from Lyon, France. When she was little, she loved to hide away and read all night long, and—more than anything else—to draw! Today, her approach to life hasn’t changed much, and she works hard to bring her projects to fruition.
