Book Cover: Finding LisaFinding Lisa

Written by Kathy Halliday Johnston

Publisher’s Synopsis: Learning life lessons is never easy, especially for Lisa, an 11-year-old girl who’s moved from the country to a strange, new city. Why can’t she make any friends? Why do the girls at school laugh at her? She tries to fit in with the smart girls, the prim and proper girls, and the sporty girls, but none of them accept her, it seems. She decides the only way to get friends is to pretend she is something she is not; that she is “one of them.” She makes up stories to impress them, only to be found out in a most humiliating way. Then Lisa has a strange dream, where she is a beautiful fairy but even in her dream, she has no friends. Again, she tries to fit in this time with the fireflies, the ladybugs, and the caterpillars. Will she finally make some friends and realize that you never have to pretend with your genuine friend? Will Lisa learn the true meaning of Friendship? Will she finally believe in the one person who will change her life forever? Will Lisa find her way? Will Lisa find Lisa?

“If you’d like your kids to know that they don’t need to conform and fit in and that they only ever need to be themselves, Finding Lisa certainly delivers.” The Children’s Book Review

About the Author

Kathy Halliday Johnston Headshot

Kathy Halliday Johnston

Kathy is an identical twin who believes everyone learns the same lessons in life just at different times in their life. She lives in Kitchener, Ontario, where she assists people struggling with brain damage and its long turn effect. She has a beautiful son and two awesome nephews. They are her inspiration when writing.

Finding Lisa is her first book. She started writing because when she was younger, the old saying it takes a village to raise a child was the case. She misses having younger children around and would like to contribute to the villages of as many children as possible.

Kathy reads and loves to spend time with friends and family. She would like to take this opportunity to thank anyone who buys her book. She hopes you enjoy reading it as much as she enjoyed writing it. Right now, Kathy is working on the completion of her second book, BEAR NAKED.
