    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.
