Description Lost for words is a coming of age story. It tells the story of Shaun Andersen, a young student with a flair for design who dreams of one day working as an architect. In the meantime, he uses his prodigious skills to decorate cakes whilst struggling with chronic dyslexia. However, on an Art School trip to Amsterdam he begins to uncover his mother's secret past, and must come face-to-face with truths that have lain buried. About the Author Amanda's teenage years were turbulent. It was compounded by the loss of her adoptive dad, the subsequent depression of her adoptive mum and the meeting with her birth mother. Amanda's guardian angel has to be the teacher she had at Art School who gave her a fresh start and showed her the power Art has to shape our lives, when all else seems lost. After working in various art and design jobs she 'fell' into teaching and work with students who didn't achieve at school, to give them a second chance. Today, she considers herself lucky to have two wonderful 'mums' and a young family of her own.
