Fifteen-year-old Zoe is many things, but confident is not one of them. Perhaps that's why she prefers the company of animals. A self-professed advocate for their rights, Zoe is not above taking matters into her own hands. But the stakes are raised when she finds herself at the centre of a dangerous conspiracy involving the disappearance of animals from a shelter. She turns to street-savvy Alex Fisher, her troubled Social Studies partner, to help unravel the mystery. Zoe soon learns that nothing is as it appears, as she is confronted by angry parents, a dangerous sociopath, and an ill-advised romance.

About the author (2010)

Lucy Lemay Cellucci is a native of northern Ontario. She is employed as a dance educator in a small dance studio, where she has had the tremendous opportunity to work daily with young adults, her chosen reading audience. Although passionate about teaching dance, her first love is the written word. A self-professed “closet writer,” she spent her childhood and adolescence writing poetry and short stories. As an adult, her writing took a back seat for several years until an idea for a story could no longer be ignored. “Zoe was with me everywhere I went. I would hear her voice, catch myself thinking her thoughts." Sitting down to write the novel was the only way to get Zoe out of Lucy’s head. True Colours is Lucy’s first published novel.
