Ellie Pillai is Brown

by Christine Pillainayagam - £8.99  Faber & Faber (2022)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780571366910 | ISBN 10: 0571366910

The perfect coming-of-age romance by the most spectacularly funny and original debut UKYA voice.
 
My name is Ellie. Ellie Pillai... And I suppose I am a little bit weird, but then, aren’t we all, just a little bit?
 
Most days, Ellie Pillai is somewhere between invisible, and not very cool – and usually she’s okay with that. But suddenly, Ellie feels different. Maybe it’s the new boy at school who makes her brain explode into rainbows every time she sees him (and also happens to be going out with her best friend), or maybe it’s her new drama teacher, the one who seems to have noticed she exists.
 
Suddenly, her misfit style, her skin colour, her songwriting and all that getting lost in the music in her head seem to be okay too. Because maybe standing out isn’t a bad thing after all.
