'A magical stormy adventure' THE TIMES

'A gem for readers of eight-plus' THE GUARDIAN

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.

  • The mesmerising third novel from one of the most exciting writers of middle-grade fiction
  • Jasbinder is the author of the Costa Book Award-winning Asha & the Spirit Bird and Indie Book Award-winning Tamarind & the Star of Ishta
  • Themes of identity, faith and belonging with a stunning twist in an evocative and remote Scottish island setting
