From the author of the Costa Award-winning Asha & the Spirit Bird and Tamarind & the Star of Ishta comes a atmospheric, magical adventure with a stunning twist ... Aarti has lived on the island with Aunt for as long as she can remember. Like the weather, Aunt rules her world with rare warmth. Aarti's only comforts are a book of Indian myths full of blue gods, a fox's friendship, and a toy rabbit she finds in a locked room. Then, she learns Aunt has been feeding her lies. Fate intervenes when a half-drowned boy washes up on the beach. With his help, Aarti hopes to remember who she really is ... and perhaps find a way home. * A mesmerising third novel from Costa-winning and Waterstones- shortlisted Jasbinder Bilan, one of the most exciting writers of middle-grade fiction. * Themes of identity, faith and belonging with a stunning twist in an evocative and remote island setting. Praise for Jasbinder Bilan's novels: 'I absolutely adored it ... an achingly beautiful story' SITA BRAHMACHARI 'Atmospheric, dreamy, charged with wonder and menace, loss, sorrow and delight' TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT 'A lush, gorgeous setting in a novel as vivid and original as her Costa-winning debut.' THE GUARDIAN 'Beautifully written, richly atmospheric and touchingly spiritual, this brief novel sparkles like a polished gem' DAILY MAIL
