Aarti & the Blue Gods

by Jasbinder Bilan - £7.99  Chicken House Ltd (2021)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781913322595 | ISBN 10: 1913322599

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, who is fast establishing herself as one of the most exciting writers of middle-grade fiction.
 
Recommended for readers aged 9+
